Football stakeholders in English football have said a big NO to plans that seek to develop artificial turfs in the country.
According to BBC.co.uk, a football League consultation forum found widespread resistance to the plans with the idea also being discussed at the league’s annual general meeting on Thursday.
Premier League and Professional Footballers' Association were reportedly among the official bodies bitterly opposed to the reintroduction of artificial turfs.
The high cost of installation said to be in the region of £500,000 together with the likelihood of the club having to replace it once they get promoted to the Premier League are said to have worked against the idea.
The turfs were banned in 1988 for the top four Divisions with the remaining one being pulled off in 1994 at the Preston North End's Deepdale.
