Top notch pitches!

Our Blackpool Whitsun Football Tournament is the final date in a series of 3 tournaments held at Fleetwood Town FC’s official training ground, Poolfoot Farm. The 2022 event takes place over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend and in to the school holidays, so there’s often no rush for families to return to work and school! Over 2 days, you’ll face teams from across the country as you compete for the Fleetwood Town Cup. And when you’re not on the pitch, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the incredible facilities at Poolfoot Farm as well as explore the seaside attractions on offer in Blackpool.
