Football pitch facilities

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. All booking enquiries are to be sent to  recreation@lincoln.gov.ukor call 01522 873502.

New artifical pitches

We are very pleased to announce that our recent funding bid to the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund and the Sport England Community Asset Fund has been successful and that we will soon bring exciting improvements to the sports facilities at Yarborough and Birchwood Leisure Centres.

Both sites will benefit from a new full-size flood-lit all weather pitch, and Yarborough Leisure Centre will also enjoy a fully refurbished athletics track. The sites play host to five a side football leagues, youth football and running clubs, and the improvements will be of huge benefit to all local sporting groups and communities. Work is expected to start in both areas in the near future and we appreciate the support and understanding of local residents. Plans have been put into place to keep disruption to a minimum at all times.
