A Bank Holiday with a Bang at Blackpool this May!

Contest the Fleetwood Town Cup at our exciting 2-day tournament where you’ll battle it out with U7s – U16s football teams from all over the UK in up to five matches per day.

When it comes to fantastic facilities, look no further than Fleetwood Town FC’s official training  ground, Poolfoot Farm – where you’ll play on one of 18 professional pitches. And after the high demand in 2023, we’ll also be heading back to the fantastic facilities of nearby Thornton-Cleveleys FC. When you’re not playing, join family and friends and enjoy excellent on-site facilities – like a pitch-side bar, al fresco dining area and a 400-seater beer garden – with plenty of time to explore the famous sites of Blackpool too. 

Have a blast this May Day bank holiday weekend in Blackpool!

May Day not working for you? Not to worry – as there’s our Easter Blackpool Tournament too!

Excellent facilities on and off the pitch!

Poolfoot Farm’s hard to beat facilities make for an unforgettable tournament weekender for players and supporters. There’s 18 4G and grass pitches, a pitch-side bar, a 400-seater beer garden showing live football and an outdoor terrace dining area serving great food for the whole family! 

Again in 2024, we’ll be heading back to nearby Thornton-Cleveleys FC. Only a stone’s throw away from Poolfoot Farm, there’s four new 11-a-side pitches and a fantastic club house in what was a great addition to the ‘Fleetwood Town Cup’ in 2023 and promises to be again in 2024!
