Football pitch availability

The table below indicates whether each pitch is playable for the coming weekend. This page is updated each Friday lunchtime during the season, please check back each week.

Pitches are closed when weather conditions are such that playing on them could cause prolonged damage to the pitch for the remainder of the season.

If pitches are marked as open but the weather conditions deteriorate overnight or on the day of play, individual clubs are ultimately responsible for assessing pitch conditions on the day of play.

Please do not play on frozen or waterlogged pitches.
