MyLocalPitch announces April prize winner

MyLocalPitch’s Outstanding London Sports Venue Award for April has been won by Powerleague Shoreditch.

The two-and-a-half-acre site was built on an abandoned railway goods yard three years ago and is now home to two seven-a-side 3G football pitches and 11 five-a-side 3G pitches on the site.

Powerleague’s passion is bringing local people together, sharing the good times as a community and enjoying grassroots football.

Players have the option for one-off bookings, a regular block booking and even finding a late replacement through Powerleague’s network of footballers around the borough.
