It's my understanding that Widnes Vikings play on an i-pitch at the Stobart Stadium,the home of the Rugby League Club. Is this the case and are these pitches acceptable for FA competitions?


The FA don't go into details regarding the different names manufacturers come up with for their pitches. They're either natural grass or artificial in the FA's (and possibly FIFA's) eyes. Artificial surfaces have a test that has to be done every year for bounce etc. Pass that and the pitch is allowed.

A quick Google comes up with the 2008 test methods. I'm sure later versions are available somewhere - http://www.uefa.com/.../745207_DOWNLOAD.pdf
