Additional info for Blackpool residents
More women in Blackpool are playing football than ever before, thanks to a little help from the Premier League and FA. In March 2019, an investment of £576,000 was outlaid to build a new state-of-the-art 3G astroturf pitch at Unity Academy Blackpool. The pitch will help support over 20 local female teams over the next 5 years.
As part of Blackpool’s continued development of sport, the town has recently developed plans to incorporate a state-of-the-art sports village as part of a £28.8m project for a Blackpool Airport Enterprise Zone. The village will include 2 3G football pitches, 10 grass football pitches, indoor tennis and netball courts, a fitness studio and much more.
