Get involved with football

Find out how you can get involved with football at UWE Bristol.

The MOVE programme offers you the opportunity to play football through activity sessions and intramural leagues. These sessions allow you to play in a friendly atmosphere, and are open to all levels of ability.

Football at the Centre for Sport on Frenchay Campus.

Intramural leagues

Our social football leagues provide you with the opportunity to play in a fun yet semi-competitive environment.

Outdoor football

These sessions do not have a coach present but the pitch will be set up so all you need to do is book on with some of your friends, turn up and play!

Check the UWE Bristol Sport app for weekly sessions.


The games will take place at the Centre for Sport astro pitch.

Please see the guidelines for acceptable footwear on the Centre for Sport Astro and Hillside Gardens 4G pitch. You will not be allowed to enter in unacceptable footwear.


If you have a MOVE or Active Card membership book your session via the app or online.
