Women’s World Cup Players Withdraw ‘turf war’ Lawsuit

The Women’s World Cup “turf war” is officially over. A group of players who filed a lawsuit against FIFA and the Canadian Soccer Association alleging gender discrimination over the decision to use artificial turf instead of real grass was withdrawn on Wednesday, the players’ council confirms. This means the quadrennial tournament will go on this summer as planned, with every match taking place on an artificial surface.
