East Riding FA PitchPartners

PitchPartners is a local natural turf grass pitch improvement campaign to enhance the quality of grass pitches across the county, for a better football playing experience. It is built on the involvement of the groundscare community across East Riding FA grassroots football networks and Local Authority partners. We want to put the sector in the spotlight by celebrating the impact of groundscare on football.

Supported by the Football Foundations PitchPower App our network groundkeepers do a great job behind the scenes to make football happen with reducing the number of games cancelled each week a top priority.
