Thermal blanket for the pitch at the Camp Nou to combat the freezing temperatures

FC Barcelona installed a thermal blanked over the Camp Nou’s pitch to prevent the grass from freezing before the match against Real Sociedad. The temperature is expected to drop below zero tonight in the Catalan capital. The thermal blanket will allow the pitch to keep a temperature of three or four degrees. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
