Stop plans to downsize the football pitch at Barnard Park

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

Currently, Barnard Park contains an 11 a side pitch located in Barnsbury, Central London. Although the pitch is in need of renovation, the rich, social elite have put forward plans to change the pitch to a 7 a side one, which will simply not be big enough for projects like Highbury football school, that offers very affordable coaching every Sunday morning to up to 150 children. At a recent meeting that passed the proposed changes, it was said that there would be a suitable amount of space to play football and other activities on, which simply isn't true, especially as there isn't another 11 a side pitch in the area. We want to push for an eleven a side pitch that will be top quality Astro turf that actually benefits the local community,   especially as the FA and sport England have agreed to pay for the facilities.
