24 February 2015

FL clubs vote against reintroduction of artificial pitches

The Football League has confirmed that its clubs have decided against the reintroduction of artificial surfaces into the League’s competitions.

Following an unprecedented tied vote by clubs at their previous meeting in Derby in November, clubs considered the matter, once again, at their meeting at St George’s Park last week.

A Football League Spokesman said: “Over the last 12 months, League clubs have debated the issues relating to the reintroduction of artificial playing surfaces on a number of occasions.

“Having considered all the available information, and having heard from relevant experts at last week’s meeting, clubs have reached the conclusion that they do not wish to pursue the matter any further, as a majority of them prefer to play their matches on grass pitches.”
