Derby Racecourse is one of the football hubs managed by Derby Parks.

The site acts as the central venue for the Derby Junior League providing grass football fixtures across mini soccer, youth, and senior football pitches. There is also bookable changing accommodation and a community room for parties and meetings. To find out more see our space hire page.

The site is the home of the Steve Bloomer 3G pitch that provides a venue for football training, fixtures, and development sessions. The pitch is 100 x 65 meters to accommodate full sized pitch bookings and can be divided into thirds to facilitate small sided games and training space for use by multiple groups at any given time.
