Join our grass pitch revolution
The Football Foundation are revolutionising the state of grass football pitches across England, ensuring that by 2030, grassroots football has 20,000 'good' quality pitches to enjoy. So, if you're responsible for the maintenance of a grass pitch, find out how we can help you to power up your grass pitch below.
Putting the power in your hands.
PitchPower is our game-changing web app that allows you to quickly and easily inspect your grass pitch(es) directly from your mobile phone. Use the app to submit information about your pitch to the experts at the Grounds Management Association who assess the site without needing to make a visit. After the assessment is complete, you'll receive a report straight to your inbox which will tell you exactly what you need to do to improve your pitch.
You must complete a PitchPower inspection before applying for any grass pitch funding.
