Where you can take your dog to football in Bracknell and Berkshire

For many football supporters, the lure of the non league game is increased significantly because dogs are made welcome up and down the country.

There’s even a twitter account documenting mans best friend at grassroots games, it’s @nonleaguedogs and the hashtag #nonleaguedogs. Even for a ‘cat person’, I have to admit they are quite marvellous.

Football in Bracknell has been asked a few times about clubs that are dog friendly in Berkshire, so I emailed all the clubs from step six upward about their policy.

The majority were welcoming of dogs at grounds but some are tied by landlord regulation. Here’s a full list of clubs that responded. If your club is missing please email [email protected] and we’ll update!

If you want to find a game, we post weekend and midweek fixture lists here.
