Nice small boutique style festival ground. On the occasion I was there (Happy Days Festival) there was plenty of grass on the ground and a few small shops and a couple of fast food outlets. Well organized and onsite parking was very close. Plenty of toilets in the usual festival condition. The site operated a token system for drinks at £5 each, a great idea which made for easy access to beer and other drinks. The only down side was if you don't have VIP tickets you can't access anywhere near the stage! Also there are too many people taking camping chairs which makes moving about very difficult.

Small ground, easy to find. Finding the actual entrance proved a bit more challenging. Having eventually found it we were charged£10 for a London cup game against a team of under 21's. Seemed unnecessarily expensive and possibly explained the very small attendance. Website had said concessions would be £5. Only, when we got there concessions suddenly didn't apply to students or youngsters. Apparently it was F.A. rules. All seemed a bit tight and unnecessary but considering the number of balls they lose over the surrounding fences maybe they need all the cash they can get to cover the cost. We were offered a team sheet, once they'd got them printed. Needless to say they never arrived. Don't think I'll be making a return any time soon.

A good sports facility. Lots of things happen here by the looks of it. Lots of football pitches, Met Police’s home ground is here too. Other events such as the Happy Days festival

Met police ground has one of the best grass pitches I have seen. The staff are really nice and friendly. They have games most Saturdays some of which you pay a fiver to see. But the under 23's are free to watch.Enjoyed watching the U23 game.

History (from Wikipedia)


The club have played at Imber Court since their establishment. The site was purchased by the Metropolitan Police Service in 1919, with a clubhouse opened in 1920.[9] A grandstand was opened in 1923 and doubled in size to accommodate 672 spectators in 1934.[9] Floodlights were erected in 1971 and the ground was enclosed in 1973.[9] Terracing was installed on three sides of the pitch in 1984, with a cover added to the Mounted Branch End in 1988.[9] In 1994 the original stand was demolished and replaced with a 300-seat stand, which was opened with a commemorative match against the Army.[9]

When playing at home, the players come out to the tune of "
I Fought the Law" by The Clash.[10]
