Find your play
After the World Cup in 2018, football participation at grassroots level saw a notable increase and the football craze still hasn’t worn off. Over 11 million people were kicking-off in the UK last year while the Premier League continues to be the most watched league in the world every season, encouraging more and more people to get the ball at their feet each week.
Whether you’re looking to have a kick around with a few friends or want to get involved in a competitive league, Playfinder can help you find and book football pitches in all corners of the UK.

Ranging from 5-a-side, 7-a-side and 11-a-side, you can choose from a variety of pitch surfaces such as artificial, 3G astroturf, grass and indoor.
