FIFA in order to promote the artificial grass, the World Youth Championship in Finland in 2003, all with artificial turf. Led to participate in the competition of the Chinese Football Association vice-chairman Yang Yimin was revealed to the media, in the Super League in 2004, will likely compete with synthetic grass, but three years later, the current super venue did not see the emergence of artificial grass.
As early as in 2001, the Changchun Yatai told the Chinese Football Association proposed the idea of using artificial grass, later identified Changchun Yatai the negative game canceled ascend A A qualification, the plan along with stranded because of the Chinese Football Association.

He said artificial grass or can not be compared to natural turf, burning degrees as well as friction performance is poor, very easily lead to injuries of athletes, athletes are very valuable and worth of an athlete will be able to justify natural grass the price, who do not want to take the risk.
