MLS Cup Final on Field Turf

Yes, MLS fans, despite all that is right with this league you still get your opportunity to bitch and moan. Qwest Field will be Field Turf for the Cup Final, as the temporary sod would have been unsafe for players.

- MLS worked very closely with the Qwest Field and Sounders FC staff to analyze all of the options to bring in temporary natural grass for MLS Cup at Qwest Field.

- One of the top priorities for this year's championship match is to provide the safest and best playing surface possible for both teams, and after extensive research (MLS) collectively believes it will be artificial surface.

I am, and will remain so until evidence is provided to counter it, faithful that great Field Turf is better than average natural grass. In Qwest we have great Field Turf. Could it be better? Certainly, but in November with Seahawks and Sounders both using it there is no way grass could be better, and certainly not a temporary solution.

Complain away MLS fans. We've gotten good at it.
