Synthetic Football Pitches

Our synthetic pitches are of the highest quality. The community pitch has recently been resurfaced with new state-of-the-art Fieldturf Core. Our pitches are maintained on a regular basis: each pitch is ‘brushed’ 2–3 times a week. Our stadium pitch is UEFA 2* and International Rugby Board (IRB) compliant. We are a training venue regularly used by domestic and international football and rugby teams, including the Scottish Women’s Football Team and the All Blacks.

Our pitches

We have 5-, 7- and 11-a-side pitches available for matches, training sessions and recreational play. Hire includes access to the team changing rooms and officials’ rooms for matches. Our pitches are floodlit. The stadium pitch has capacity for 3,200 spectators and a stand with covered seating for 504.

We allow only moulded boots on the pitches. If you need to borrow boots we have a boot bank at The Academy. Our footwear guide is here: SCFA_Footwear_Sign.pdf.
