If football is your sport and you’re looking for somewhere to play or you have an established team and are interested in new league opportunities, then there are a range of indoor and outdoor facilities to choose from throughout the city, managed by ‘Better’. 

Outdoor 3G and Astroturf pitches are available at West Denton Leisure Centre, Walker Activity Dome and Newcastle Trampoline Park and Gym and Eldon Leisure Centre has indoor 5-a-side courts for hire throughout the week.

Eldon teams are fully registered with the Northumberland F.A and prize money is awarded to league winners throughout the year. 30 minute and 20 minute league games are available that can fit easily into most busy lifestyles.
