The Best Football Pitches Birmingham has to Offer
If you’re in England’s second city and fancy a 5-a-side game with the boys, then be sure to check out these fantastic football pitches in Birmingham!
Getting out of the house for a game of footy now and again is excellent for exercising and socialising. Despite its reputation as a “concrete jungle”, there are loads of fantastic Birmingham football pitches around the city where you and the lads can book in and go for a kickabout. Let’s look at all the best football pitches Birmingham has to offer.
1. Powerleague Birmingham
First up on the list is Powerleague Birmingham, one of Birmingham's largest and most popular football pitches that can be found on the north side of the city, close to the infamous Spaghetti Junction. Open until midnight throughout the week, this place offers players 5- and 7-a-side outdoor pitches and an on-site bar and function room. It also takes corporate bookings, so if you and the lads from work fancy a kickabout, this place is well worth checking out.
2. Goals Birmingham (Star City)
Not far from the last entry on this list is Goals Birmingham StarCity. Situated at the popular entertainment and shopping complex north of the city, this venue has ten 5-a-side pitches for you and the lads to hire, all with synthetic turf. Open late throughout the week here, you’ll also find an on-site bar and café, free Wi-Fi connectivity, and live sports playing on their TVs.
3. Yardley Fives
Situated in the Yardley area east of the city centre is Yardley Fives. If you’re looking for Birmingham football pitches without all the frills, this place will suit you and the lads just fine. With seven 5-a-side pitches available to book, you can play here until 10 pm throughout the week, closing earlier on Fridays and weekends. When you’re finished, you could always go for a pint in The William Tyler, Yardley’s Weatherspoon pub, just a 5-minute drive from the venue.
4. Goals Dudley (Rowley Regis)
To the west of the city centre, you’ll find Goals Dudley at Rowley Regis, one of the biggest football pitches in Birmingham, with 11 large pitches available for hire. Much like many other Goals venues across the country, you can play here until 10:30 on the weekends and 10 pm during the week, so if you’re arranging an after-work game, you have plenty of options.
5. Goals Birmingham (Perry Barr)
Also, near the feared Spaghetti Junction in the north of the city is Goals Birmingham Perry Barr. Like other Goals venues, this place offers timeslots until 11 pm throughout the week, closing earlier on Fridays and the weekends. This place boasts 8 five-a-side pitches, a large 7-a-side pitch to book out, and an on-site bar with free Wi-Fi connectivity. Throughout the day, you can also catch live sports on the TV screens inside, so heading here to watch the game is also a great idea!
6. Aston University Sports Centre
Probably one of the closest football pitches in Birmingham to the city centre, the Aston University Sports Centre may belong to the university, but they gladly hire out their sports facilities to the public, making this a great place to play a game of 5-a-side if you don’t want to brave the weather. However, if you’re going to play outside, they have a 3G pitch in Gosta Green that you can book through their website, too.
7. Bournbrook Sports Pitches
Owned by the University of Birmingham, the Bournbrook Sports Pitches can be found on the university’s campus south of the city centre. Here, you can hire one of their small-sided 3G pitches and full synthetic and grass pitches through their “Pay & Go” system. Just remember that prices vary depending on whether you’re booking during peak or off-peak times, so it’s best to check ahead and see what these are before booking.
8. Goals Black Country (Bilston)
Last but certainly not least on this list of Birmingham football pitches is Goals Black Country in Bilston. Perfect for those in Wolverhampton and Dudley, Midlanders would argue that this isn’t in Birmingham, but we’ll leave that up to you to debate. Like other Goals venues, this place also stays open until 11 pm during the week, closes earlier on the weekends, and offers free Wi-Fi and an on-site bar & café.
