In the Eredivisie, PEC Zwolle, Excelsior, Heracles Almelo, ADO Den Haag, VVV-Venlo, Sparta Rotterdam and Roda JC all play on artificial pitches, but their use is up for debate by the KNVB.

Ajax have been strongly apposed to the fake grass and Marc Overmars confirmed at the club’s annual General Meeting of Shareholders, that they would no longer loan any players to sides playing on artificial turf.

Ajax have made their feelings clear to the KNVB and want artificial pitches banned over the next two years.
