Does anyone know if the revised scheme includes the indoor half-sized training pitch that was previously reported when these plans were first announced in late 2016 (page 30 of this thread)? I've tried Googling for the info and the reported blurb that I've seen is that the mass of the scheme hasn't changed significantly, and it also looks like the structure is still there in the revised renders, but those renders seem to crop it out or marginalise it. I haven't seen an internal shot of it in the updated renders and there's no mention of it in the Chairman's comments or reporting that I've seen.

Brighton's training ground has always reminded me of a smaller version of the English FA's St. George's Park training ground (it's still hugely impressive in it's own right though - just that St. George's Park is immense). It's the Y-shaped building with a large indoor pitch at its foot that does it. This proposed extension will make it even more similar-looking.

Germany give Gareth Southgate seal of approval by COPYING England's ideas

While the Three Lions reached the World Cup semi-finals last summer, the 2014 champions failed to get out their group

We have been waiting years for this.

After years of England trying to copy the Germans, they have given Gareth Southgate their seal of approval by trying to nick England’s ideas.

The German Football Federation have made top level visits to St George’s Park to try and tap into knowledge about building their new training centre.

Plus they have been asking for advice on coaching, player and coach development as well as the Football Association’s media operation.
Full story in the link below:

DFB headquarters and academy in Frankfurt

The city of Frankfurt has handed over to the German Football Association a 15 hectare part of the former racetrack area in the Niederrad district. There, the new headquarters and academy are to be created.

The association is planning to complete the new building in 2021. A public park is planned on the further area of ​​the former racetrack.

Leicester City’s state-of-the-art new training ground has taken its next steps towards becoming a reality in recent weeks, as the Club prepares to deliver its vision for a world-class sports facility in north Leicestershire.

Plans for the development of the former Park Hill Golf and Fishing Centre at Charnwood were revealed by the Club in February 2018, in what Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha described as ‘a once-in-a-generation opportunity’ to make a sizeable, meaningful investment in the Club’s long-term future.

And following the appointment of McLaren Construction as the project’s principal contractor, initial preparations and earthworks to transform the 185-acre site are now firmly under way.

The new training centre will be among the most modern football facilities in Europe, including:

- Eleven full-size pitches including a 499-seater mini-venue show pitch
- Eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas
- Full-size artificial indoor pitch
- Thirty five bedrooms of on-site accommodation
- Rehabilitation facilities and hydrotherapy pool
- Training centre building including dining areas, administration offices and media centre
- Sports turf academy for the development of the next generation of grounds staff

Over 11 hectares of retained woodland will be bolstered by the planting of 38,000 new trees. These will supplement the 9,000 trees removed or replanted for earthwork enablement, which in turn has created 900 tonnes of wood chips that will be used as biomass fuel. The development will also see the retention of 4.4 hectares of new planting and landscaping and 14.6 hectares of wildflower grassland.

Protected newts inhabiting areas of the site earmarked for development were collected and rehomed in nearby ponds before Christmas and the remainder will be moved when they emerge from hibernation in the spring. From the ponds on site, 400 fish have been netted and moved to a new home elsewhere on site.

Preparation of the site will continue over the course of the next month before foundations for the main buildings are set. The development is expected to accelerate quickly, with the aim of having the new facility open and operational ahead of the start of the 2020/21 season.

Benfica has revealed the project for the next Caixa Futebol Campus (CFC) expansion. Currently: 190.000 m2, 8 pitches, 98 beds, 360S simulator.



The big white building should become a hotel. The smaller buildings behind it will house the international school for 650 students, with the end goal of having 1200.



The 6 pitches on the top left, plus the white building next to them, are going to be built in 140.000m2 the board is trying to buy. If there's no deal, they've secured 420.000m2 nearby to move forward with the project. Everything else is the current setup.

Besides the training center expansion and international school, the club is moving forward with the "Sports City" in Oeiras, which you can check out in page 34. There's also a hotel being developed for the former club offices in downtown Lisbon.

QPR expect to begin construction on their new training ground at Warren Farm as early as next month.

The club currently share training facilities at the Imperial College Sports Ground in Harlington and have been looking to move to the new site in Hanwell for several years.

Initial plans had been for the new training ground there to be ready for the start of the 2013/14 season.

Planning permission and other obstacles delayed that, but work is now finally set to begin next month.

South Carolina likely will offer the Carolina Panthers $115 million in tax breaks to move the Charlotte-based NFL team’s headquarters and practice facilities across the N.C. border and to Rock Hill.

The tax discounts proposal passed the state Senate 27-15 Thursday after a days-long debate featuring questions about the deal’s costs and projected benefits for South Carolina and skepticism over offering financial help to the Panthers’ billionaire owner, David Tepper. It is expected to become law later this month after six House and Senate members meet to negotiate minor points in the bill.

The Panthers have been waiting on the bill to pass before moving forward with plans to purchase up to 200 acres of land in Rock Hill and build a complex that is expected to rank among the best facilities anywhere in the NFL.

Officials have said the project will feature an orthopedic sports medicine facility employing about 200 people and a hotel with at least 150 rooms and space for conferences. It also could attract a corporate headquarters and residential projects, a team official told The State.

The Panthers want to start construction later this year and move into the complex in the first quarter of 2022.
