Monifieth Athletic Football Club are a long established Youth Football Club in the Dundee and District Youth Football area.
We have leased grass football pitches at Riverview Monifieth and this allows us to support our 10 youth football teams playing in the local 7-a-side and 11-a-side leagues. We also have the next generation coming through in our Preparation Squad children aged 7-8 and our Soccer School for children aged 5-7.
We have recently been awarded the SFA Quality Mark for Developement Club and SCIO registered No. SC047019
Our pitches are also used by a local amateur team Monifieth Tayside and Monifieth Ladies for their training and games.
As a club we want to provide an Astro Turf All Weather Pitch which will be used for Multi Sport Games arena. This will assist in all year training for the teams and soccer school as they presently have no training or go elsewhere for winter training due to no local facility.
This facility would be available for use by the local community as a valuable resourse and as a club we are already looking at once complete it being used for Walking Football and children with Additional Support Needs, and a number of other opportunities.
We will be looking at other avenues of funding, applying for grants, speaking with the local authority etc.
While it is early in the process of getting this facility as club we want to show a commitment to getting this moving and initial costing estimate it cost approximately 300k for 7 aside pitch and 600k for full size pitch. Or in simple terms £100 per sqm.
Lets see if we can bring this facility to Monifieth.
Thankyou for reading and supporting this project.
