Dorchester Town Community Football Club are delighted to be welcoming 112 youth teams from across the South West to The Avenue Stadium next weekend on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July.

If you are attending we ask you read the below information carefully.

How to find us:

The Avenue Stadium is conveniently located at the southernmost point of the town, adjacent to the A35. If you are approaching Dorchester from Yeovil (A37) or Wimborne (A35), follow the bypass around the town centre, following signs to Weymouth. At the Stadium Roundabout, take the Weymouth Avenue road towards Dorchester, turning right at the two following roundabouts.


We have a limited number of parking spaces at the stadium therefore we ask that people consider sharing cars to the tournament. We will be charging £2 parking on the days of the tournament.

No parking is available at the front of the stadium. If you require special assistance please email us at:


There are two snackbars which will be open inside the ground selling a selection of hot and cold food, drinks and sweets on both days.
