Hackney Marshes is the spiritual home of Sunday league football, with over 50 matches played between dozens of amateur teams every week.

The quality of football is usually quite high... but even if you end up watching a duffer, you can simply walk over to the next pitch and watch that instead. There are so many games being played each week that you're bound to find a good one. You can even watch a couple at once if you don't mind swivelling your head around.

This place is for real football aficionados. Going to the big games at Wembley and Arsenal and Chelsea is fine, but there's nothing like standing pitch-side and hearing the bone-thumping tackles coming in, seeing the mud flying, and supporters getting irate every time they miss a kick. This is real football. And it's free!

The area of Hackney Marshes where the games take place is huge. There are an incredible 82 pitches in total (that is how large it is!), but the matches are spread across three separate venues: Hackney Marshes Centre (also known as The South Marsh), Mabley Green and Victoria Park. Check out their website at hackneyandleytonfootballleague.co.uk for details about how to reach each of the three sights. That website also provides a fixture list of upcoming games.
