Football facilities

Football pitches 

All of our football pitches are provided with shower and changing facilities, booking in advance must be made and all pavilions will be opened and closed by a provided caretaker; with the exception of Skellingthorpe Road of which keys will be provided. 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.
