Men's Football

Football at Loughborough caters for all whether you are a professional footballer, an up-and-comer, or just a beginner, we have something for you.


Our performance players are supported by full-time coaches, can utilise world class facilities and have access to strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapy and performance analysis. They are also offered lifestyle support and our top athletes can receive scholarships.

Our club plays in the Total Motion Midland Football League, the FA Cup, the FA Vase and BUCS Northern Premier Division.

We have a strong football programme with four teams competing in the Premier North Competition and across the top three levels of the BUCS Midlands Championships.

The training facilities used are the two rubber-crumb artificial pitches, Powerbase gym, the High-Performance Athletics Centre as well as the Loughborough University Stadium, which was purpose built for football in 2012 as well as five other grass pitches at Holywell sports complex.
