GO Football in Durham

Football in Durham With a number of amateur teams, including Durham City FC, and plenty of pitches ideal for five-a-side and 11-a-side matches, Durham is not short of footballing action.

So whether you want to practise your free kicks or watch a team in action, there’s a venue to cater for your needs in this historic city.

There are around 30 football pitches available for hire by teams, work colleagues or families in and around Durham. These include three on Belmont Park at Gilesgate Moor, two on the Sherburn Road Estate and two in West Rainton.

All of the pitches are outdoors and are also used by local rugby teams, although a number of the city’s leisure centres also have multi-purpose indoor halls that are perfect for a five-a-side game.

If you want to get kitted out for your big game, whether you’re a player or spectator, head to one of the city’s sport shops, such as JJB Sport [map] and First Sport [map], where you can get all the latest football gear, from replica England shirts to shin pads.

Of course, if you want to see some top football action you could always head out to one of Durham’s neighbouring towns and cities, where you can see the likes of Newcastle United, Middlesborough FC and Sunderland FC.
