Football matches get postponed for every imaginable reason but the British weather is by far the biggest reason. From Sunday games of five-a-side to premier league matches, unplayable pitches can affect everyone.
The biggest culprit of match cancellation is frozen pitches, as the cold weather can actually make the pitch unsafe for the participants to play on. Waterlogged pitches have also left many a football match in devastation.
Following on from the relentless storms earlier this year, some smaller clubs have even reported being left underwater for months, losing out on thousands of pounds worth of trade.
Artificial turf got something of a bad name for itself during the 1980s within the world of English football. Clubs such as Luton Town, Oldham Athletic, Preston North End and Queens Park Rangers all toyed with the technology, but by the early 1990s, concerns about injuries and unfair disadvantage to the home side saw the return of grass pitches.
High performance, advanced artificial grass turf pitches, which have been approved by the governing body, FIFA are becoming increasingly visible and a revival could be on the cards for the world’s most popular sport.
However, the real revolution has been to transform the bare, patchy fields and mud pits where generations of children learned their football skills into high performance, heavily used sports pitches.
