Lincoln’s first purpose-built indoor football arena, Active Arena, is set to open in 2020 behind the Moorland Centre Retail Park off Tritton Road.
The Active Arena is a quarter-million-pound private development which will include two indoor five-a-side football pitches, two junior pitches, a Sports Café & Bar and an activity room across two floors.
The arena will host local community health & fitness sessions, walking football groups, holidays clubs and, in the evening, five-a-side football leagues.
The Sport Café & Bar will offer a selection of hot & cold food and drinks and will play live sporting events on big screens.
Active Arena will also be available for bookings private and corporate events.
Daniel Hone, former professional footballer and owner of Active Arena said, “With five-a-side leagues and kids coaching growing at a fast pace, Lincoln is crying out for a safer, indoor, purpose-built football venue.
“Outdoor pitches are open to the elements, this means they become un-useable and dangerous in bad weather.
“Active Arena’s purpose-built indoor pitches can be used whatever the weather outside.”
