A new WSBSPORT 5-a-side club has opened in Pacoima, north of Los Angeles.
With millions of potential players 30 years old in average, the new LabFive club has everything required to become a very successful facility.
The idea to create LabFive came from two French entrepreneurs. One of them has been in the 5-a-side world for many years through the ownership of a club in Aix-en-Provence, France. The other has lived in the United States for 20 years and is proud to have been one of the first 10 employees in the history of Facebook.
LabFive, features eight 90’ x 55’ 5-a-side soccer fields, a club-house and an e-sport center in collaboration with MCES, a French Pro-Gamers Team. This is a unique innovation and proof that esports and traditional sports are not in competition.
The total investment for the club is approximately of US$2 million, of which 1/5 was used for the 5-a-side soccer fields.
A 100% no-infill and high-density synthetic turf from ItalGreen and a 10 mm shock absorber pad to prevent injuries and improve turf performance have been installed on the playing fields. The frames and dasher-boards, hot-galvanized and thermo-lacquered as usual, have been fixed to a reinforced concrete footing made of in accordance with local anti-seismic regulations. The polyester perimeter nets have to be cleverly divided in two on the short side of the field, the most stressed one, for facilitate future maintenance. LED lighting completed the installation.
In November 2019 the entire structure was handed over to the owners. Piero Iazeolla, CEO & founder of WSBSPORT commented: “The installation in Pacoima has been successful and fully reflects the parameters of modernity and the reliability
of our company. We can’t wait to open the club and continue our partnership with LabFive in new clubs throughout California.”
WSB has 20 years of experience in the industry and has built more than
170 clubs in 5 different continents.
