New AstroTurf pitch at RAF Cosford

Station Commander, Group Captain Tone Baker officially opened the new AstroTurf pitch at RAF Cosford.

The modern pitch epitomises how the RAF continue to provide top level training facilities for personnel; it cannot be understated the importance of sport within the military. It helps to foster a team mentality and Esprit de Corp, while at the same time encouraging individuals to develop both physically and mentally. It is this competitive edge that is vital in driving our people to succeed in this modern era.

The distinctive colour makes a great talking point and is a great landmark from the air too.
