Football pitches

Houghton Field is the home of Houghton Rangers Football Club (HRFC). HRFC juniors provide football for boys and girls age 5-18 years. HRFC seniors are the current Leicester and District football league champions. Next year, they will be competing in the Leicestershire County football league and are hoping to enter a team in the Leicestershire Women's senior football league.

The field has two full sized football pitches and a junior football pitch. The main pitch had its drainage improved in 2018 funded by grants from Sport England and the Playing Field Association. This has greatly improved the playing surface so that it is considered to be one of the top grass pitches in the county.
