Just heard that the Women's World Cup next year will have 5 out of the 6 stadiums with artificial turf.

It's not common over here. Do the Canadian football players play on it a lot?

Well yes if it's the astroturf we had back in the day. But hopefully it will be something a bit more like grass.



Hopefully.

Commonwealth Stadium used to have real grass but opted for astroturf a couple years ago. Grass in autumn, when it will mostly be used by the CFL team, turns brown and ruddy and by November when the Grey Cup comes around turns into icy mud. Looks like they never budgeted pulling the turf to put in the sod.

Astroturf? The plastic stuff that cuts you when you slide on it? OOh bugger.

Yeah I am pretty sure artificial grass is not legal it depends on the location I believe.
