Home to The Scarlets regional rugby team and also Llanelli Rugby Club. The stadium also hosts Welsh International football matches averaging over 80 uses each season. Producing and maintaining a stable, hardwearing surface for such a demanding season requires great skill and effort from Head Groundsman, Luke Jenkins. He has come to rely on Maxstim to help him keep his turf attractive and durable for the entire football and rugby season.

“We always aim for deep roots, as we know the roots will shrink come the wintertime; our target is to have a root mass going into the winter of plus 150mm. This should give us the platform we require to take the plant through the colder months. Since using Maxstim we’ve seen a significant improvement in the root mass. The roots are very thick even deep down at the base.”
