Following closures due to Gateshead Council's Covid-19 response, we are introducing a phased reopening of leisure facilities. It has not yet been confirmed when this activity will restart.

We will update the website with any changes so please check back regularly for updates.

Ah, the beautiful game. Wingers versus fullbacks, centre backs versus centre forwards. How will you line up to counter the opposition? 4-4-2 or 3-5-2? How will you play? Tica taca, or good old long ball? These are all questions you'll need to answer to come out on top. But we'll let you answer them out on the pitch

Let your football do the talking with 11-a-side pitches at a GO Gateshead leisure centre.

Marked out grass pitches with goals are available at both Gateshead International Stadium and Heworth Leisure Centre.

For all-weather games, Gateshead International Stadium boasts a modern 3G pitch, designed to replicate the feel of grass with a shock absorption layer to minimise impact on joints.
