The hunt for the worst football pitch in the UK is drawing to a close - but there is still time for any last-ditch nominations.

Since the beginning of 2014, Pitch to Win has been seeking the worst amateur football pitch in the country. The closing date of Friday, March 28 is now looming.

The winning club will receive a £3,000 pitch makeover from outdoor power equipment specialists Briggs and Stratton, and two runners up will receive £500 each for their club kitty. All winning teams will also win a season’s sponsorship and a new kit.

The competition has been launched by Briggs & Stratton to highlight the importance of local football teams in communities and to help them improve their facilities.

With the recent awful weather and flooding, the competition has come at a key time with hundreds of games across the country being cancelled due to bad pitch conditions.

To nominate a pitch, visit www.pitchtowin.org.uk, briefly describe your team’s pitch and why it deserves to win, and send in some photos, to show how much you need the makeover.
