Change Centre Dundee is thrilled to announce the construction on two state-of-the-art outdoor five-a-side pitches is now complete. This marks a significant milestone in our ongoing journey, with these astro pitches playing a pivotal role in developing Street Soccer programmes and expanding our services to the local community.
Opening to the wider public in early 2024, this development aims to create closer community links across the city, using positive change through football. We are grateful for the unwavering support and backing from sportscotland, The Scottish Government, Scottish Football Partnership Trust, and Dundee City Council. Special thanks go to project supporters, including Biffa, Tayside Contracts, Trades for All as well as our dedicated Street Soccer volunteers.
Scott Hollinshead, Change Centre manager, shared his enthusiasm over the completion of the pitches, saying, “This is a massive moment for the centre and its development. The pitches have been something we have had planned since opening as the Change Centre and their arrival ensures that we continue to provide first-class services and facilities for the local community, that will enhance the level of support we are able to deliver. Thanks to everyone who has been part of this journey, and we look forward to getting on the pitch with you all in the New Year!”
David MacKenzie, regional manager for Street Soccer in Dundee, added “This is another fantastic development for the Change Centre and City of Dundee. We are now ready to begin the New Year with more engagement opportunities to improve physical, mental and social wellbeing for both our player audience and the wider community.”
Both pitches will sit side by side at the very front of the building and will allow players within Street Soccer players to gain more access to free football, as well as the introduction of fitness classes and so much more. You can secure the pitches for five-a-side block bookings from January 4th.
