I could imagine the vote taking place this summer and the new rule being implemented for season 25/26.

Yeah so if they get promoted they've also got to plan to rip their pitch up next summer. Helluva cost for a small club that would probably be trying their best to invest in a squad.

Edit - its apparently from season 26/27.

Not the first time the Scottish football establishment will have punished a member club for being successful.

Well needed but I would rather play on an artificial pitch than not play (twice) on a grass pitch that's not fit to play on. They need to address standards of grass pitches too because the impact Dundee's pitch had on the season was a joke tbh.

Yip but if you want to play in the big league you need to fork out to keep the standards.Too many diddy clubs come up and the owners pocket the money greedy pricks

So they’ve already held the vote that’s happening this summer and was only announced publicly about an hour ago?

Just what I seen on some rangers FB page, no need to get your knickers in a twist mate x

Not a fan of plastic pitches and couldn’t care less about the rest of Scottish football but there is 3 teams with a chance of promotion next season to the top flight who all have plastic parks, not including Raith who might come up this season. Could be a headache and is it actually worth the hassle for clubs if they have only 1 season in the top flight? Might see the end of the play off structure.

This could cripple clubs coming up if they rely on the money generated/saved by having an artifical pitch

Can imagine some clubs might need to choose between promotion or foregoing it and saving the club in the top division due to costs of lifting the pitch
