Our complex is open to everyone, from students and staff at Manchester Metropolitan University to members of the local community.
Located in Fallowfield, Manchester Metropolitan University's Platt Lane Sports Complex offers a variety of top quality pitches, a fully equipped gym, a range of fitness classes and, maintaining the site's football heritage, a number of coaching sessions to suit all ages.
The complex is home to a number of our sports clubs, including football, rugby union, rugby league and American football, as well as several of our recreational sport opportunities. The complex is also used by a number of local clubs and community groups.
Continuing for 2019 is the BUCS UNIversal Gym Membership. This scheme allows staff and students at Manchester Met to join Platt Lane's Gym Hub on an annual membership and get access to more than 90 other gyms across the country.
