Leicester City

Additional renders showing their future training facility:





Quote:
Key masterplan elements include the following:

– 12 full-size pitches, including show pitch with 500 seat stand to allow academy teams to play in a match environment

– Full-size indoor pitch signature building that moulds into the landscape forming the centre piece of the masterplan

– Integrated training centre building for first team and academy squads including fitness and hydrotherapy suites, tactics, medical, media and dining facilities

– 9 hole recreational golf course and sports turf academy which will train the next generation of elite ground staff

The facility seeks to combine best practice in elite sports training with a celebration of the Foxes culture and ethos, and work is programmed to start on site early 2019.

"Could it be completed before Spurs’ new stadium? "

Cheeky, but they're 8 years behind us when it comes to developing a world-class training centre. Keep up Kopites!

AS Monaco





Quote:
ASM’s new state-of-the-art multifunctional sports complex “Center for Sporting Excellence” (“Center”) at La Turbie will be located on a plot of 5 ha while the Center’s main building will occupy over 7,500 m2. Its facilities will include three football pitches meeting UEFA and French Football Federation standards; a fitness center, a medical center, a rehabilitation zone, a restaurant, and a conference hall with capacity for 80 people.

The Center is being integrated into the local landscape with full respect for the environment. Solar panels will be installed on the roof of the building to ensure independent hot water supply. In addition, all land extracted during the earthworks will be reused after the construction phase. The investments in the construction of the Center have amounted to EUR 55 million. It is expected to be open by the 2020-21 season.

Love that Monaco training ground. Was there something on the site previously, like a quarry? Surely, they haven't dug out the side of the hill just for this? No doubt they'll put some netting up but the idea of the ball being punted clear and straight down the valley is appealing.

Inter Miami proposes using Fort Lauderdale's Lockhart Stadium site for training facility

With that plan in motion, Beckham and Mas’ Inter Miami CF have turned their attention to Broward and Lockhart Stadium.

They have proposed to the city of Fort Lauderdale building a state-of-the-art training facility, multi-purpose sport stadium, youth fields that would be used by the team’s youth academy, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

It would also have public facilities such as a playground, running track, a dog park, and possibly a community meeting center.

Lockhart Stadium, which opened in 1959, has had a long history as a soccer venue, with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and Miami Fusion, among others, calling the stadium home in the past. The facility, however, has fallen into disrepair in recent years and currently sits idol.

For Inter Miami, another key factor is that the stadium has a central location for South Florida’s three counties.

The Inter Miami youth academy will have teams that range in age from 12 to 19. More than 120 athletes will get a fully funded opportunity to train as they pursue their collegiate or professional soccer careers, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

In addition to the academy, the complex would also house Inter Miami’s technical staff.

The stadium could host MLS preseason games and local high school sporting events.

Inter Miami has proposed paying for all of the design and construction of the team facilities along with public facilities, except for a community meeting center. Once built, the team would pay for the maintenance of their facilities and city would pay for the maintenance of the community facilities.

The proposed agreement would last for 50 years.

Representatives from Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club have made their case for the extension of their Lancing training ground to councillors.

The American Express Elite Football Performance Centre, owned by Albion, is hoping to expand into a corner of land to the south east of the site.

The proposals, which have yet to be submitted in a planning application, include building a club hub and three additional football pitches on the land.

Laura Collins, projects manager for the football club, told members of Lancing Parish Council at a meeting on Wednesday that it would give the women and girls teams a dedicated facility to train in.

The club hub would include advanced medical and sports science facilities, a yoga and pilates studio and changing rooms, including a changing places facility for people with complex needs.

If plans for the extension are approved, the football club hopes that work would begin in the summer.

Brighton & Hove Albion FC’s state-of-the-art training and teaching facility is a Category One status training centre under the Premier League’s Elite Player Performance Plan.

The facility includes 11 full and half size natural grass and artificial pitches, plus a half size covered indoor pitch, ensuring playing facilities are accessible and playable throughout the seasons.

The distinctive Y-shaped building provides secure accommodation wings for the club’s professional squads and academy youth teams, plus a separate wing for common recreation, medical treatment and media facilities and gymnasium.

From the Raiders a video about their new headquarters, including a fly through rendering of their new training facility (render starts at about 1:28):



Also, from Twitter, a map of the facility:

I'd never really given this much thought before, but are NFL franchises basically the main team with no other subsidiary teams? Because I assume this training facility will be (one of) the best in the US, but it 'only' has four fields.

Compare that with Premier League training grounds. Ours has 15 pitches, Leicester are looking at installing 12, Liverpool's new training facility has 16, Man City's also has 16.

Do younger age teams, reserve teams, women's teams (that are increasingly training on the same site as their first team counterparts in football) not exist in the NFL? I guess the youth side of things is covered by College Football?

Yep! To answer your questions, an NFL franchise is basically its own self contained entity with no "reserve squads," "academies" or things of that nature. NFL squads run about 53 men on a roster, with about 8 or so "practice squad" members who train with the team but don't suit up on gameday. this can rise up to 80 plus players during training camp, but that's as high as it gets. And so the four fields are plenty to get the work in. Oftentimes the offense and defense second units will be on one field, while different position groups (receivers, quarterbacks etc.) work on another, while special teams might be practicing kicking on a third field. Also, one field may be turf and the rest grass to get used to a particular surface for that week. But otherwise that's it, the development for the NFL is handled at the collegiate level with NCAA teams and the league is more than happy with that arrangement (because it's free for them! )

There is ONE caveat though: with the newest facilities they are often planned with community sport in mind (as part of a public funding scheme) and the local High School football teams will use the main practice field for big games and championships and what not. This is seen in the Dallas Cowboys' training facility and the new Minnesota Vikings one, and may be the case here as well.






ETA: It's funny you mention this, because I had the exact opposite reaction as yours! I'd see the grounds posted here and my first thought would be "why do you need 15 fields for like 30 guys??"

Bristol Bears





Quote:
A professional rugby union club will start work to build a ‘world-class training facility’ between two villages next month.

Bristol Bears successfully applied to North Somerset Council in April 2017 to build a training complex on land at Kingcott Farm, between Failand and Abbots Leigh.

The rugby club will build a two-storey training barn containing a gym, changing rooms, a floodlit all-weather 4G pitch, three grass pitches and offices for staff.

Work will begin next month and the club aims to be using the facilities by April 2020.
