Even though they have the label ‘athlete’, and often rely on both feet rather than hands, a footballer can in fact also be said to be an artist, it’s just that if an artist needs a stage to express their work, it’s different from football players who need the field to bring out their best work. in football. The field itself is one of the most important elements in football, without which soccer players will not be able to hold matches.

The soccer field is a very important and mandatory element in soccer matches in Indonesia. Meanwhile, for amateur football players, suburban children who play soccer are just for entertainment and looking for sweat, playing soccer does not have to be on a large grass field, as long as the field is flat and wide enough, matches can be started, even a lot. who use the highway as a place to play.

- Zoysia Matrella
In the first place there is Zoysia Matrella Grass, also known as manilla grass. This grass is very suitable for use on soccer fields, because the texture of this Zoysia grass is not rough, the edges are pointed and its good elasticity also prevents soccer players from scratching when making certain movements. Not only that, this one grass also has strong roots, the color is also darker green than the other two types of natural grass.

Even so, FIFA itself does not prohibit the use of this synthetic grass.
