There is no appetite among SPFL Premiership clubs to go Dutch and tear up plastic pitches.
This week the Dutch FA (KNVB) announced that part of the money clubs received from the Champions League and Europa League would be used to bring in grass pitches to replace artificial surfaces.
Three out of Scotland’s top 12 clubs play on plastic with managers and players regularly complaining about the quality of play at Kilmarnock, Hamilton and Livingston with concerns also raised about the number of injuries picked up.
“In the Ladbrokes Premiership, all artificial pitches are subject to rigorous spot-checks, to ensure that all artificial pitches continue to perform at FIFA Quality Pro standard throughout the season.
“It is open to clubs to change the SPFL Rules in this area, should they wish. We have not received any such proposals from clubs to date.”
