3G (Football Turf) Pitches

Last Updated: 17 February 2017

The following pitches appear on the F.A. list of approved pitches that can be found at 3g.thefa.me.uk/?countyfa=Essex

If any new pitches appear on the F.A. Register but do not appear here, before they can be used the League Fixtures Secretary MUST be sent an e-mail by the owners of the facility confirming the actual dimensions of the pitch and whether they have corner flags. If this information is not forthcoming then the pitch cannot be used.

The League have found it very difficult to find out this information, so any help clubs can provide in getting it would benefit everyone.
