Clubs discussed their re-introduction at meeting at St George’s Park last week
Football League clubs have decided against the re-introduction of artificial surfaces into league competitions.
Following a tie in the vote by member clubs at a meeting in November, the matter was once again discussed at St. George’s Park last week and the clubs have decided against the idea.
A Football League spokesman said: “Over the last 12 months, League clubs have debated the issues relating to the re-introduction of artificial playing surfaces on a number of occasions.
“Having considered all the available information and having heard from relevant experts at last week’s meeting, clubs have reached the conclusion that they do not wish to pursue the matter any further, as a majority of them prefer to play their matches on grass pitches.”
