April’s Outstanding London Sports Venue winner

There are a host of competitive 5-a-side leagues that are all officiated by FA qualified referees who adhere to the FA’s rules and regulations. At the end of each campaign there is a trophy and medals for the victors. All the pitches are the highest quality 3G surfaces that are surrounded by rebound boards to keep play moving and in turn push those fitness levels. Since launch Pro Direct, Gatorade and Fosters have all come on board as partners to enhance the playing experience.

Anyone just wanting a kickabout without the competitive edge can hire a pitch with friends or work colleagues for as little as £3 per player. Playfootball will even help source a player from a database should you suffer a late drop-out before a big game.

The award, which is determined by Playfinder users, was based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

Playfinder is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 1,000 venues for 16 featured sports.
