There is growing pressure from English Football League Clubs to allow the installation of artificial turf. As the GreenFields artificial turf pitch at Scottish based Stenhousemuir receives its 6th annual FIFA 2 Star certification, clubs in the English Football League are starting to realise the long term, sustainable benefits an artificial turf pitch could bring to their clubs. In the 1980’s clubs like Queens Park Rangers, Luton Town and Oldham Athletic installed the first generation pitches. However their use was stopped in professional league games. Skip forward 20 years and the restriction in the professional league games is still in place yet turf technology has moved on two generations in leaps and bounds. Modern artificial turf pitches are completely different products, tried, tested and approved by football’s world governing body, FIFA.
