FA Parklife Programme

Parklife in Sunderland will bring a new way of delivering grassroots football to local football clubs and Organisations within the City.

The FA, the Premier League and Sport England are aiming to create a sustainable model for football facilities based around artificial grass pitches as well as natural turf pitches on hub sites within the City.

If Sunderland City Council are successful with their application there will be 3 hub sites dedicated for the delivery of affiliated & recreational football. Ideally each hub site will have 3x full size 3G AGP’s, natural grass pitches with changing rooms as well as a reception and meeting rooms.

Coach Education space and FA programmes will be delivered on the sites as well as opportunities for local clubs to train and play competitive matches. Furthermore, local leagues will have the opportunity to use the hub-sites as central venues for their mini soccer and 9v9 fixtures.

The Hub sites will be operated by an independent company who will be responsible to the Sunderland Board Trust which will include the Football Association, Sunderland City Council, Durham County FA and the Foundation of Light as well as other independent bodies.
