Time For An Artificial Pitch?
Posted 27 Feb 2008 - 11:33
Artificial surfaces are now virtually indistinguishable from real grass. The advantages are that you can use the pitch for any variety of activities. It could also be used for youth, reserve and ladies games before the main game. In that way more people would watch the youngsters developing, spectator arrival would be staggered and more food would be purchased. Certainly something to think about, it'd mean we could stop borrowing the Halton stadium and Marine's saving us money in the long run.

"We have envisaged, though it's not yet a final decision, that the 2010 World Cup could be played on artificial turf," Blatter told BBC Sport.
I'll take some convincing though....needs to be trialed extensively somewhere like the Conference.

The Bounce was still very unatural, & the ground speed was much the same.

Not for me thanks, a nice muddy pitch is better than nothing

I think that sometimes irregular parts of the pitch surface cause atypical situations that belong to soccer
