Situated in Woodley, right on the border of Stockport and Tameside, Stockport Sports Village is home to a fantastic state-of-the-art football facility. Boasting sixteen ‘Optima’ 3G floodlit pitches (the same as those at FC Barcelona's Joan Camper training facility!), the complex is home to many clubs from in and around the local area.

Adult and junior pitch hire for 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11-a-side is available for seasonal training, club home fixtures and recreational use. Prices start from as little as £25 per hour, with casual ‘drop in and play’ also available at off peak times for those who just want a casual kick about!

A variety of block booking options are available, with discounts offered for all year round bookings. For block bookings or general football information, please email our football team.
