Turf maintenance specialist Toro has completed a major overhaul of the pitch irrigation system at the King Power Stadium, home to Leicester City Football Club.

The club opted for the Toro Lynx central control system, an app-controlled system that is designed to enable facilities to manage its water and other resources. The system enables operators to keep all of their essential irrigation information in one place, and features a single, intuitive interface where users can track water usage, control irrigation and generate daily reports.

In addition, the club had the Turf Guard wireless soil monitoring system installed on each corner of the pitch, as well as 10 Infinity sprinklers around the perimeter of the pitch, and eight T7 sprinklers in the centre.

Simon Gibson, head groundsman at the King Power Stadium, says: "Expectations for sports surfaces are always high and the pressure for the best surface possible only ever increases. You've got to get the best results and you do with Toro. Its irrigation system delivered everything we asked for."
