Various AstroTurf facilities in the city
It started as a concept imitated from the west for passionate sports enthusiasts to play after hours, and now has slowly gone viral all over Mumbai and other Metropolitan cities thanks to budding sports enthusiasts turned entrepreneurs that realise the need and passion for the sport. Coming from the same area myself and working and partnering on such a facility I see a lot of potential for growth. I also see confusion and sometimes lack of knowledge when it comes to making a choice for which turf to play at. Here’s a consolidated list of all the turfs in the city along with the sport they offer and the price range:
Cooperage side pitch – Churchgate

Probably offers the best football playing experience according to me since its open and not contained in a structure. The facility has two five a side pitches or you can use the entire pitch to play 7 a side.
Price: 3800 per hour for half a pitch, 7600 for full pitch.
Booking Details – For group bookings call +912222844545 / +918080297427 or visit www.indianfs.in for registration and further enquires.
NSCI 5-a-side – Worli

Recently opened, this facility offers a really good view of Haji Ali while you play. Has two independent five a side pitches. Since it’s a part of the club, it ends up being much cheaper than other facilities in the vicinity.
Price: Varies depending on time slots.
Astro Park – Kamala Mills, Lower Parel.
This facility is huge, it’s centrally located and probably the finest, most well maintained, well – managed and highly active turf in Mumbai. They conduct 3 month long football leagues and get about 40 teams from all across Mumbai to participate in it.
They’ve recently opened up new pitches at Lion’s Club, Santacruz & in Hyderabad.
