Football venues open for 3-a-side
12 June 2020 • By - callumbrunning
Football is back! (sort of). After the government’s latest lockdown announcements, gatherings of up to six people will now be allowed in England and Wales, in accordance with social distancing.
We have all missed football. Playing it, watching it, living it. Somehow watching re-runs of Euro ’96 just doesn’t feel the same. But now after this week’s easing of lockdown, people will be allowed to get down to their local pitch and have a 3-a-side training session, providing they stick to the social distancing restrictions.
This week we are seeing more and more football pitches become available to book across the country for 3-a-side sessions. “So where can you book 3-a-side at a venue near me?”, we hear you ask! Here at Playfinder, we have listed below where you can find and book 3-a-side venues in London and in the rest of the UK.
