Football League Clubs Tied On Artificial Turf Vote
Thu 6th Nov 2014 | Football Stadiums & Facilities
Artificial playing surfaces will not be permitted in Leagues One and Two after Football League clubs were tied in a vote on the issue.
At an EGM at Derby County today, thirty-four clubs voted in favour of the proposals with thirty-four against and four abstentions.
The Football League's Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: "This vote is reflective of the fact that this issue divides opinion amongst clubs as much as it does across the football public.
"While the outcome is different to previous indicative votes, it demonstrates that there is still a desire amongst clubs to find out more about artificial playing surfaces before taking such a significant step."
