Early days, but it looks as if Canada's only major seating capacity stadium (Edmonton) with a turf surface may be looking at an artificial alternative.

Although there will be no change this year, LeLacheur admits the sacred grass field at Commonwealth Stadium could be replaced with innovated field turf similar to Clarke Stadium's surface in the future.

That would be a really dumb move if they did that. :thmbdown: I realize that FIFA does allow artificial surfaces now, but to change Edmonton's stadium to that would be stupid. If Canada was ever to host the World Cup, I believe this would not be something FIFA would take kindly to. If anything it would hurt any future Canadian bid. The natural grass has worked really well for the past 30 years or so, why change it now?
