Wythenshawe Sports Ground

Located just 4 miles from the city campus in Manchester, it is one of the largest grass areas in the UK which is solely dedicated to football.


The University of Manchester temporarily ceased operation of all sports facilities on March 17th 2020 following Government instructions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to this the University had already been considering its position in relation to the future operation of Wythenshawe Sports ground, due to decreasing student usage. The current situation, forcing a temporary closure of the site, has further underlined the need to make a decision.

Unfortunately the site will not re-open as a University of Manchester operated facility.

 Therefore, no future bookings will be taken by the UoM Sport bookings team.

The University is however, looking into all other possible options to support the continuation of use of the site for sport and events



The University of Manchester no longer operates WSG facilities.
