The law firm that represents soccer players who object to an artificial turf surface at the Women’s World Cup says a FIFA-commissioned survey of players shows that 77 percent feel major tournaments should be played on natural grass. But that wasn’t enough to sway organizers to let the women play on grass. Wambach, a group of teammates and a number of international players are protesting the artificial surface, claiming that forcing the women to play on turf amounts to gender discrimination.
