Floating football field at Royal Albert Dock

A football pitch with a difference has been installed at the Royal Albert Dock.

The floating football field is a pop-up pitch on a pontoon in the heart of the grade I listed waterfront attraction.

And it will host the annual Summer Football on the Dock season which runs from August 2 to 10, 11am to 3pm, and from August 11-22, daily from 11am to 4pm.

People of all ages and all abilities are invited to drop by and join in the fun, overseen by coaches from Everton in the Community and the LFC Foundation. No pre-booking is needed.

Royal Albert Dock marketing manager Clare Rawlinson said: "Summer is in full swing so bring the whole family along and take part in some great outdoor pursuits on Liverpool's world-famous waterfront.

"The floating football pitch is certainly a first in the Dock's 172-year history - who wouldn't want to play some football in such a unique and stunning location?

“We know visitors of all ages and ability are going to have a blast and it doesn't matter if they are a boy or a girl, football fan or not, experienced or a novice, a red or a blue!”

Meanwhile, on Sunday, August 5, the pitch will be transformed in to a netball court with visitors coached in new skills from 11am to 3pm.
