Artificial turf may soon be making a comeback in the English Football League. The governing body announced last week to start a consultation round which may lead to a change of rules, after it became increasingly popular in the European football leagues.

In the 1980s, four English clubs - Preston, QPR, Luton, and Oldham - made the switch to artificial turf. However, after a review in 1989 the FA decided to ban artificial surfaces. However, the turf of that time was nowhere near the quality of the turf today, and several clubs in the lower leagues are currently informing on the possibilities of a rule change.

Playing on artificial turf generally has benefits such as cost savings, increased revenue, and less postponed matches.

Though artificial pitches have a higher initial cost, they often have less regular maintenance costs. Money could additionally be saved by having the first, reserve, and youth teams train and play at the same pitch. Higher income could be achieved by opening the stadium up for more outside events without any negative effects on the condition of the pitch.

Opponents of artificial pitches have often argued that the use of artificial pitches leads to increased injuries, that the ball behaves differently, and that the home team has an advantage by being used to the different conditions. However, there is currently no evidence to support any of these claims.

The use of artificial pitches is allowed in most competitions, however to host a European Cup final, real grass must be used. FIFA also recommends their use only in regions where weather conditions negatively affect the use of a natural pitch.

artificial pitches are fairly common in high-profile stadiums around the world, including Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, which has an artificial surface.

Some stadiums in the other top European leagues, the Bundesliga and Primera División, are still exclusively equipped with natural pitches. It is also not likely that the smell of grass will disappear from the Premier League any time soon. For England?s lower leagues though, tradition may soon have to give in for plastic.
