Premiership clubs have voted in favour of phasing out the use of artificial pitches in the SPFL top flight.

Clubs in the Premiership had brought forward a resolution seeking to phase out artificial pitches in Scotland’s top division, which was issued to all Premiership clubs.

The SPFL can confirm that the resolution has now passed.

The SPFL Board has granted a two-year period to allow clubs with an artificial pitch to plan for the phasing out of artificial pitches in the top tier of Scottish football.

This period of grace is in line with recommendations of the SPFL Competitions Working Group, which represents member clubs across the SPFL.

The SPFL Board recently approved plans for a Premiership-wide project to work with a leading pitch consultancy firm, which is regularly used by UEFA, to improve the standards of grass pitches in the cinch Premiership.

The SPFL will be engaging with Premiership clubs on this project ahead of the new season.
