The pitches at Prescot’s new centre are set to open on 15 July and will offer a football experience that is unrivalled in the area. The centre offers state-of the art third generation (3G) pitches which have all the characteristics of playing on grass.

Whether you manage a junior team, want to be part of a league, or just fancy a kickabout with your workmates, we have everything you need. There are seven five-a-side pitches, which are fully surrounded by rebound boards to ensure that the ball is always in play. We also have a full-sized astro-turf pitch for 11-a-side matches.

With floodlit pitches and free on-site parking, Prescot Soccer and Leisure Centre is the place to be.

The leisure facility with a fitness suite, changing facilities and a fully licensed bar and cafe will open in October.

Cllr Eddie Connor, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Community and Culture, said: “This is a fantastic facility with the latest pitches and will be a real asset to the area. We hope that the local footballing community will be delighted with the quality of facilities on offer – and we believe it represents great value for money.

“Knowsley has a great footballing pedigree, having produced some of the country’s top players, and we hope this facility will help to develop future football stars, as well as providing local residents with a fun and affordable way to keep fit”.

The centre will be open every day and pitches are available to book now. Discounts are available to FA affiliated teams – call 0151 443 2200 or visit www.activeknowsley.com for more information.

    Seriously? They called it a “Soccer” and leisure centre? It’s called football, not soccer. At least not in the UK!

    Great value for money??
    You spent £650,000 on the very same pitches about 5 years ago!
    Still it’s good to see our council tax being spent in prescot and not in an Icelandic bank or invested in property like that school in Huyton that no-one will be attending next year.
    Abolish Knowsley now or at least sack these ‘managers’ who spend OUR money as if its Christmas.

    ‘Knowsley’ has no footballing pedigree!

    Peter Reid is from Huyton
    Steven Gerard is from whiston
    Phil Thompson from Kirkby
    Etc

    None of the above say ‘I’m from Knowsley’ apart from the PR fools within the council, of course!!
