GO Football in Birmingham

Football in Birmingham Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city and as such does not disappoint when it comes to the national sport.

If you’re a fan of football or fancy learning what the game is all about then Birmingham is a good place to go as it has a multitude of football facilities for amateurs and three professional football teams that span the football league.

If you’re looking to play football in Birmingham with your friends or work colleagues then why not try some of the local leisure centres for indoor and outdoor facilities.

Nechells Community Sports Centre [map] can be found to the north of Birmingham city centre. There you can find full size, grass football pitches as well as floodlit football facilities and 5-a-side pitches.

Slightly further out of town in the Redditch area of the city you’ll find Abbey Stadium [map], a sports complex that features three outdoor football pitches as well as indoor 5-a-side facilities.

If you know of any soccer mad boys or girls in the Birmingham area why not get them enrolled in Strikes Junior Soccer Academy. This local council backed initiative aims to develop soccer skills in 4 – 13 year olds through a structured programme that teaches on the ball skills.
