The group of caravans departed during Tuesday (5 September) as the field turned into a quagmire with heavy rain.
South Ribble Borough Council confirmed the group had moved, before legal proceedings were due to begin to begin enforcement.
A spokeswoman confirmed the council is due to inspect the damage and state of the sports pitches during Wednesday to decide whether sports fixtures can resume on the site.
