GO Football in Blackpool

Football in Blackpool With a few football pitches, junior teams, and a Coca-Cola League Division side, Blackpool has lots to offer footy fans.

If you want a friendly five-a-side game then check out the facilities at Blackpool Sports Centre [map], which has a sports arena, and an outdoor all-weather pitch. Football sessions here can be pre-booked for one or two hours.

For those who just want to enjoy a casual kick-about with family and friends there are more than 80 public parks in Blackpool, where you can enjoy a friendly game of soccer.

Stanley Park [map] is the undoubtedly jewel in Blackpool's crown and covers 256 acres of scenic parkland. Along with plenty of space for a game of football, the park also boasts a café where you can grab a refreshing drink at half time!

The city’s professional football team is Blackpool FC, which has had a rather illustrious past, mainly thanks to its connections with the legendary Stanley Matthews. For more information on the club’s history, click on the link below.

To show your support for the Tangerines or to get the latest training gear, head to one of the many sports shops in the town centre, including JJB Sports, which sell a wide selection of football clothing and accessories.
