Ponteland Rugby Club and Ponteland United FC have joined forces to launch a £1m campaign to develop a community clubhouse. 

The much needed venue would include changing rooms, a social space and balcony overlooking the rugby and football pitches.

Ponteland Rugby Club has three senior teams (1st XV, 2nd XV and 3rd XV), Ponteland Tigers ladies' team and ten junior teams (under-7s to under-18s). 

The 1st XV plays in Northumberland and Durham Division 1.

Ponteland United FC has 51 teams playing league football including 48 junior teams from under-7s to under-23s and three adult senior teams. There are also 12 girls' teams and a senior women’s team.

Ponteland United First Team competes in the Premier Division of the highly respected Northern Football Alliance League. Having won promotion in their inaugural season, Ponteland Women are progressing up the women's football league in style. 

The senior teams are returning to the Callerton Lane site after four years, having been relocated during the development of the new Ponteland schools and leisure scheme.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Ponteland Rugby Club is the only rugby club in Northumberland not to have changing rooms and social facilities. Ponteland United FC cannot progress further up the national leagues without them.

We are not eligible for external funding such as National Lottery, Sport England, The Football Foundation, RFU etc, so have to raise the full cost ourselves via fundraising.

How we’ll spend the money raised

All money raised will go towards the costs of designing and building the new clubhouse. As you can see from the visuals here, we have already commissioned architects and have started discussions with Northumberland County Council planning officers.
