Moat House Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre is having their 3G outdoor football pitch upgraded.
The current football pitch has served the city well for more than 10 years, hosting various Coventry clubs and residents.
The updated pitch will be a state-of-the-art, FA approved, 3G outdoor pitch with flood lights.
Opening in mid-April, the pitch will be ready soon after leisure centres are proposed to re-open next month.
The work comes as part of the terms and conditions of the Football Foundation Grant that was previously awarded to improve football and physical activity development in the area.
The re-surfacing of the pitch is being funded by Coventry City Council and will continue to support a number of football progammes, local clubs and local communities to take part in outdoor activity in the city.
Enabling active lives continues to be a priority in the city. The upgraded facilities at Moat House Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre are an important investment in future provision that support the drive to increase participation in sport in the city.
A representative of CV Life, said: “Moat House Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre really does continue to get better and better. We are always looking at new ways to improve what the centre has to offer.
“We want to ensure all the facilities there are in-line with those across the city and re-surfacing the pitch to create an updated 3G version is part of that. It’s great that Coventry City Council continue to invest in local sport facilities.
“With gyms re-opening soon, we look forward to adding this to the list of facilities available to improve the physical and mental health of Coventry residents.”
Moat House Leisure Centre already showcases state of the art TechnoGym Skill line ranges, Olympic standard equipment and new cardio machines for its members and customers.
