Football

We have outdoor pitches throughout Edinburgh in both grass and astroturf for 5, 7 and 11-a-side and some venues offer floodlights so you can play outdoors all year round. 

Prefer to play indoors? Our halls are set up with goals and very popular for smaller groups of 5s - hire a hall for some lunchtime action or a get together with friends.

  • 5 and 7-a-side astro - ideal for smaller groups and play in most weather conditions
  • 5-a-side at Meadowbank Sports Centre - bring the outdoors indoors with our next generation FIFA-approved artificial grass surface
  • 5-a-side indoor - hire indoor hall space at leisure centres across Edinburgh




  • 11-a-side astro - full size and all weather available at Meadowbank, Saughton and Meggetland
  • 11-a-side grass - available in locations all across Edinburgh
  • Grass training - train on the turf at Jack Kane Sports Centre

Astro Pitches

Our 3G astro pitch is designed to minimise injuries, reduce ball bounce and has a natural feel – like playing on grass but better suited to the Scottish weather.

Grass Pitches

If you prefer to play your favourite pastime in the traditional way then we have the turf - ideal for informal games and larger groups.

Hall Hire

Don't let the weather stop a game of footie! We have indoor hall space at several of our venues that are ideal for a game of 5-a-side.



Birthday Parties

Keen to score a great birthday party? Enjoy an hour of indoor 5s, have a kick about, play games or invite a coach before more fun in the party room. 

Coaching
