"IFK Gothenburg could be forced to change the arena"
"Blue and white threatened by gräsfiasko"
"IFK Gothenburg could be forced to change the arena in the league premiere against Elfsborg."
"Why? Hybridgräsmattan at Gamla Ullevi."
"Right now it's not playable," says Anders Albertsson, evenemangsansvarig on the Got Event."
"The teams for the premiere is approaching with leaps and bounds, but for IFK Gothenburg there have been problems."
"the Lawn at the Old Ullevi stadium are not up to it, and the ”Blue and white” can, therefore, be forced to move the premiere against Elfsborg to grannarenan Ullevi, which GT was the first to report on."
"– on Which the carpet is right now, the 19 march, reaching it is not up to the values we want it to have to call it playable, confirms Anders Albertsson, evenemangsansvarig on arenabolaget Got Event."
"”Can't promise anything”"
"the Match against Elfsborg played on 7 april. It is not currently confirmed where it should be played. "
" We have two weeks on us. We work from premises that the carpet should be playing, but at the moment we can't promise anything, " says Anders Albertsson."
"What is it that has happened?"
" After the season we made a big renovation of the hybridmatta we la two years ago. What you do is that you remove a large part of the ytlagret, about three centimeters, sow new grass and pours on with planvärme, care and so on. The problem is that it is vinterhalvår and that you are dependent on it to grow properly. "
"So, in hindsight, you could have done something differently?"
" We have not saved anything. We have had planvärme in time throughout the winter and taken the advice of the best available gräsexperterna, among other things, from England. In England is hybridgräs usual, but the difference there is that they have their break during the summer. They make their renovation then, while we are forced to do it in the winter, " says Albertsson."
"During the Tuesday Got Event an emergency meeting with the clubs who play at Gamla Ullevi (IFK Göteborg, Gais and Örgryte)."
"When, at the latest, we need to make a decision? The fans will wish to know for logistical reasons."
"– Just, it's not just about a playing surface, but about an event that should be carried out. Where, we must, together with the clubs to do everything we can to achieve a good ranking. We have talked with the clubs today and they will come back to us, what it suffers from, " says Anders Albertsson."
"So in the end it is the clubs themselves who decides?"
" Yes. Make a decision about a possible relocation."
"Elfsborg coach Jimmy Thelin felt not to the data when Sportbladet asked him during the league upptaktsträffen."
" Yeah, I did not know. For our part, it doesn't matter. We will be ready no matter what arena it is, " he says."
"neither IFK Gothenburg klubbdirekt Max Markusson felt to the possible relocation."
" I know very little, I have not heard anything personally yet from the Got Event. It becomes a real-life situation may take a snack then, but it is clear that we want to play on our home turf, " he says."
