English term or phrase: pitch heating (URGENT)
O texto tem a ver com estádios de futebol GRANDES E DE LUXO!

- All seating within stadium is covered and heated. The turf is provided with pitch heating and four huge screens provide spectators replays etc.

Já agora, "turf" é relvado, não é?

Portuguese translation:aquecimento do gramado
Explanation:
turf = grama
pitch = o gramado quadrangular onde se joga futebol
pitch heating = aquecimento do gramado, pois no inverno, a grama e o solo congelam e tornam a prática difícil (a bola balança demais).

aquecimento da área de pitch


Explanation:
Do AHD (The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition):

Sports. The rectangular area between the wickets in cricket, 22 yards (20.1 meters) by 10 feet (3.1 meters). Also called wicket.


Tem certeza que se trata de estádios de futebol? Para mim, me parece que estão falando de estádios de baseball, daí falar no "pitch", que é onde o arremessador lança a bola a ser rebatida. Aquele lugar onde fica o arremessador é o "pitch".

Infelizmente, não sei se há um nome consagrado em português para o "pitch".

Um abraço,

Rogéria
