Football pitches

football game

There are football pitches in some of the larger greenspace areas in Bedford and Kempston as well as the urban parks. Changing rooms, goalposts, nets and flags are provided for all pitch sizes apart from the mini pitches used by the youngest category of youth teams.

The football season runs from the first Saturday in September to the last Sunday in April. 

Anyone can book a pitch through Bedford International Athletic Stadium:

in person: Barker's Lane Stadium (opposite the Fire Station)

by phone: 01234 351115

by email: bias-sales@fusion-lifestyle.com

 

What you need to know about hiring a football pitch

The football pitch system has changed from previous seasons with teams now required to unlock and lock changing rooms and to put up nets and flags. To help you understand how this works, the following information may be particularly helpful.
