Fieldturf curse bites CONCACAF Champions League matchMarch 7, 2012 at 11:15 pm | Posted in General Football, Vancouver Whitecaps, Whitecaps Season 2012 | 4 Comments
Before today’s match in Toronto LA Galaxy players Robbie Keane and David Beckham were already complaining about the fieldturf at Rogers Center, and as far as I am concerned, good on them. Having watched the magic Barcelona worked on their perfect grass pitch in the Nou Camp earlier in the day, the match at Rogers Centre looked like a dogs breakfast because of the terrible playing surface. Sure, the standard of play is lower between the Galaxy and TFC, but the bounce of the pitch made for a shockingly bad display of football.
It is high time fans of football everywhere work to get rid of this stuff for football at the professional level. It is simply no substitute for grass.
