Peffermill's natural turf football pitches are acknowledged as being amongst the best in the East of Scotland.

Peffermill is home to University mens' and womens' football clubs, intra mural leagues and is a training and competition venue for other local teams.

It is available for recreational and corporate matches, training and tournaments.

In the peak season there are five football pitches available.

During the summer season the pitches are rotated to accommodate cricket and essential grounds maintenance. However there are always football pitches available for use.

The allsport astroturf and 3G pitch are floodlit and fully lined for 11-a-side football. It can also be furnished with additional equipment such as seven-a-side goals, officials' tables and public address system.
