Plastic Pitches

As a kid, I grew up dreaming of some day playing football at Wembley. I didn’t want fame or fortune, I just wanted to strut my stuff on what I knew was the best surface available. Making do with cul-de-sacs, parks and church halls, my one school trip to Wembley didn’t put me anywhere near the hallowed turf itself.

These days I have easy access to plastic pitches that young me would never have dreamed possible. My local New England Revolution produce an attractive, often successful style of passing football on FieldTurf.

It’s time to destigmatize plastic pitches.
