Lancashire FA relocated from its Blackburn headquarters to the County Ground in 1998.

Located next to the Motor Vehicle Museum, the County Ground was originally home to Leyland Motors FC who played in the Lancashire Combination, Cheshire County League, before becoming founder members of the North West Counties Football League.

Whilst well renowned locally for its immaculate playing surface, the County Ground has also seen significant improvements off the pitch over the years, including the construction of a 500-seater stand.

Facility Hire

The County Ground

With a capacity of just over 2,300, the County Ground is currently home to the U23 sides of Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers, as well as the Association's U18 representative team. The pitch also hosts the majority of the finals of our 18 county cup competitions, as well as selected semi finals.

Car Parking

The Association's 120 space car park operates a Pay & Display system, with contract permits also available for Monday to Friday usage.

LFA pitch

3G Artificial Grass Pitch & Small Sided Pitch

Early in 2011, the County Ground refurbished its existing synthetic pitch with a 40mm third generation (3G) Artificial Grass Pitch, and developed a purpose-built Small Sided Pitch.

Available to hire is the main 3G pitch (as a full pitch or half pitch), and the small sided facility, which has surrounding fence and rebound boards (approximately 37m x 28m) with recess small sided goals built in.

Both pitches are fully floodlit, available for daytime and evening hire, seven days a week.

Great savings can also be made on block bookings over four and ten week periods.

Please note, for any bookings involving children and young people under 18, the club or organisation booking the facility will be required to complete a Service Level Agreement in advance.

To book, please email

Corporate Room Hire

Above the Association's offices, on the first floor of the building, are five rooms available for hire during week days and evenings.

Free WiFi is available for visitors to use, while the Association is also able to provide catering and refreshments to help ensure your event is complete.

To book, please download and complete the room hire booking form and email it to Danielle Humber.
