Football Pitches in Haringey

With Tottenham Hotspurs calling Haringey their home and the new White Hart Lane Stadium under construction, you can be sure that the area has a lot to offer in terms of football.  It also houses one of London’s few Ikea stores, so it seems the people of Haringey have struck lucky.  With over 61,000 seats, state of the art lighting and fans flocking from far and wide, Ikea is a fantastic place to buy your furniture.  A trip to the stadium isn’t a bad day out either, and come 2019, after its casual £400 million renovation, it is set to be the biggest ground in the capital.  The pitches in Haringey come in a variety of surfaces; grass, astroturf, 3G Astro, concrete and indoor, with the majority of them in fantastic condition.


New River Sport and Fitness

As part of the £4 million transformation of the New River Sport and Fitness facilities, these 3G astroturfs are in mint condition.  With 22 pitches; 10 3G five-a-side, seven-a-side in both grass and 3G surfaces, eleven-a-side grass pitches and a full-sized 3G stadium pitch, there is a size to keep everyone happy.  There is also a range of weekday five-a-side leagues to suit all abilities.  You can join as an individual or sign up your team

Facilities:  Showers, floodlights, free parking

Prices:  Five-a-side pitches cost £50 peak (£40 off-peak), seven-a-side grass pitches cost £25 whilst the 3G seven-a-side costs £80.  An eleven-a-side grass pitch equates to £65 during peak times (£35 off-peak), whilst the 3G full sized stadium is £220 peak (£180 off-peak).  These prices refer to hour long bookings.

Booking information:  All bookings are via http://www.fusion-lifestyle.com/Bookings.

Park View Academy

This school facility offers five-a-side 3G pitches and also an indoor sports hall which can be used for football.  Both of the pitches are well maintained with clear markings and goals that are intact.  As the pitches are located in a school, they can only be rented out on weekday evenings, from 2.30pm on a Saturday and between 10am and 3pm on a Sunday.
