Cotswold Rangers are in talks with Stroud Town Council, which owns the playing field.
They are also planning to carry out consultations with residents in the area to gauge their views.
Cotswold Rangers were formed two years ago by a group of work colleagues who wanted to play football together on the weekends. Now they have two teams and have started a women’s team. But they do not have a permanent home. They have been playing on various pitches including at Marling School in Stroud.
Club chairman Ryan Harmer said the club planned to install a small building to provide changing rooms and showers at the playing field as well as mark out the pitch.
Town councillors were supportive of the proposal but asked the team to consult nearby residents.
“As a club we’re pretty ambitious but we also want to make a name for ourselves through our conduct – on and off the pitch,” said Ryan. “We’re a nice team to play for – and against.
“We always wanted somewhere we can call our home and the Uplands playing field is a fantastic opportunity for us to develop a home ground that we can be proud of.”
The town council are keen to see improved facilities at the playing field, that would be shared with the local community.
However, before any final decision is made, the town council will see that a full consultation takes place with the local community to ensure that their views are taken fully into account.
