Football facilities

Football pitches

Once a pitch has been allocated, all regular home teams will become key holders to gain access to facilities at that site. This doesn’t include one off bookings, who will be provided with a caretaker.

Booking in advance must be made.

All our football pitches have changing facilities with showers, except King George’s Playing Field.

All of our pitches are grass, we do not currently provide any other type of pitch.

Teams wishing to use the adult pitches on a Sunday morning will be given availability only after the Lincoln Sunday League fixtures have been received and confirmed.

Any new teams wishing to join the Lincoln Sunday League must contact the League Secretary before approaching the City of Lincoln Council.

Football pitches are available to hire from the last week in August until the last week in April.
