Fifa's decision to play the Women's World Cup on artificial pitches has not been a popular decision.
The BBC are reporting that 40 players have threatened legal action and signed a petition if the 2015's competitions matches are not played on grass pitches.
Former England captain Faye White has told the BBC: ""Fifa would never dream of hosting a men's World Cup on artificial pitches so why the women's?" and has questioned whether women's footballers are used as "some kind of guinea pigs."
The petition against the matches in the 2015 being played on artificial pitches has been signed by England players Natasha Dowie and Anita Asante, as well as Faye White.
Abby Wambach and Nadine Angerer, who are from the United States and Germany respectively, were the 2012 and 2013 Fifa players of the year. Both of them have shown their opposition by also signing the petition against the decision.
Legal letters have been sent to the organisers of the tournament in Canada and the governing body Fifa.
The BBC are reporting it says" "Singling out this women's tournament for sub-standard treatment is a mistake that can and must be corrected."
White, who retired from playing for England in 2012 after making 90 appearances, said: "These pitches slow the game down, the ball bounces differently and there are more injury consequences."
