Birmingham FA Pitch Improvement Programme

Birmingham County FA offers a Pitch Improvement Programme (PIP). In conjunction with the Institute of Groundsmenship (IOG) we are offering a service to grassroots football clubs to support the maintenance and development of natural turf pitches. 


  • Complete the PIP EOI form and return to Oliver.Hitchcox@birminghamfa.com  
  • You will be contacted by either BCFA or the IOG Regional Pitch Advisor to arrange a pitch visit 
  • After the visit you will receive a report detailing what is required to manage, maintain and develop your pitch’(s) 
  • You will receive a 2nd visit from the IOG regional Pitch Advisor at a later date to monitor progress made 

Subsidised rate of £50 plus VAT (covers both visits) which needs to be paid to BCFA before your visit takes place.
