Updates to service (COVID-19)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Harlington will be closed indefinitely.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

The ground at Harlington, conveniently located near Heathrow Airport, is open seven days a week and supports a extensive programme of matches involving Imperial College teams. It is also available for casual bookings by student and staff groups within the College, and by members of the public. The redevelopment of further pitches on the southside of the ground was completed in late 2005.

  • Soccer – ten pitches
  • floodlit grass and 3G Astroturf training areas
  • flloodlit hockey sand-based Astroturf
  • cricket - two squares

The Harlington ground is also home to Queens Park Rangers FC’s training centre. QPR took the ground over from Chelsea FC in July 2005. This partnership with the Championship Club has brought great benefit to Imperial students through acess to QPR FC's professional coaches. Other benefits for the college include use of the Club's Loftus Road Stadium.

The ground is a regular training venue for all levels of England Rugby Football Union teams.

The ground is also popular with an increasing number of production and broadcasting companies for television filming and photography shoots. Past clients include the BBC (Football World Cup adverts), Umbro, Adidas, The Guardian, and an Icelandic Football TV advert with Eidur Gudjohnsson.
