Dutch companies Sublean and InnoSportNL contributed to the ProFit project that will see the first 4D sports ground built in Field-Lab Eindhoven, Netherlands. The 4D Sportsground can rotate its surface to support various outdoor sports, including soccer, basketball, and hockey.

The high-tech sports ground is created using a series of panels that fit perfectly together to form flat surfaces. There’s a prismatic machinery operating below the ground level that can rotate the panels to create three distinct surfaces. For example, there could be a grass surface for soccer, a concrete surface for basketball, and a rubber surface for track and field athletics.

According to the ProFit Project’s website:

With the Cablean 4D technology, sports clubs can use every square metre of their grounds. The sports field creates 24/7 usage, also during times the grounds are not used for sports… With this innovative product, sport clubs will get the oppurtunity to create a sustainable business model. They are now able to generate their own revenues in the long-term.
