Artificial Turf in the World Cup
Issues in the Women's World cup involving artificial turf
What is the controversy?
In the 2015 Women's World Cup, Canada hosted the tournament and supplied all of their stadiums with artificial turf. But this caused a huge controversy throughout all of the women athletes disagreeing with the decision to use artificial turf. The biggest problem was the fact that the year before in the men's World Cup, the men were provided natural grass fields to play on. The women playing the World Cup were very unhappy with FIFA because of the controversy.
