AFC Bournemouth have today (Monday, 1st July) submitted amended plans to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council for a new multi-million pound training complex.

The club currently have planning permission to develop the 57-acre former Canford Magna Golf Club site, which was granted in December 2017.

Over the past three months, the club have been drawing up revised, improved plans for the state-of-the art centre, which have now been submitted as an amendment to the existing permission.

Once approved, the development will begin with immediate effect and the phased build will bring AFC Bournemouth’s first team, development squad, academy and pre-academy training operations into one location.

The centre will offer first-class facilities, including nine full-size pitches, three junior pitches, three goalkeeping pitches, an indoor artificial playing surface and an outdoor artificial playing surface, as well as state-of-the-art medical, fitness, sports science and rehabilitation facilities, administrative space and a press conference theatre.

Paris Saint-Germain Training Center: environmental and building permits granted

On Tuesday 16th July, the environmental and building permits for the Paris Saint-Germain Training Center and Youth Academy Training Center in Poissy were granted. Obtaining these permits was a major step forward in the project’s realisation.

The first-ever 100% Paris Saint-Germain facility, this new multisport venue is a key part of the Club’s development strategy. Entirely dedicated to performance, the Paris Saint-Germain Training Center will be positioned as a top-quality sporting destination for athletes and talents from all over the world.

The building permit applications submitted in January 2018 concerned the training center, the youth academy training center and the stadium building projects. The building permits and the environmental permit were granted following a public inquiry, which was carried out between 18th February and 29th March 2019 and led to a positive response from the inquiry commission. Now that these permits have been granted, the project timetable can be firmed up, with a view to opening the center in summer 2022.

Located 25 minutes away from the Parc des Princes and 10 minutes from the Ooredoo Center, the 74-hectare Paris Saint-Germain Training Center will boast 150,000m2 of outdoor spaces for training, 17 football pitches (including one covered pitch), 2 dojos and more than 4,000m2 dedicated to handball. A 3,000-seat stadium, at the focal point of the site, will host official competitions for the women’s team, who will take up residence at the Ooredoo Center.

The Paris Saint-Germain Training Center will offer optimum living, training and learning conditions. With more space, new equipment and new technologies, the Paris Saint-Germain Training Center will enable the Club to innovate in all aspects of performance over the long term, offering comprehensive guidance for youth academy players and professional players alike.

THE PROJECT’S KEY FEATURES
• 74 hectares
• 25 minutes from the Parc des Princes
• 150,000m2 of outdoor spaces dedicated to training
• 17 football pitches, 1 of which is covered

Progress Continues In North Leicestershire
A look at the latest images from the site of Leicester City's new training ground in Charnwood.

Newly-formed roads have provided access throughout the site, as building work gathers pace.

Investment in a training facility to rival the very best in Europe is the latest phase of King Power International's long-term vision for Leicester City.

Earthmovers have helped shape the landscape of the Club's new training facility since work began earlier this year.

Land has been flattened where 11 full-size training pitches - as well as eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas - will be formed.
Steel frameworks and foundations are starting to form on the 185-acre site.

A sports turf academy, among the first of its kind in the UK, will be established at the training facility, for the development of the next generation of sports turf specialists, both nationally and internationally.

Work is now underway on the stunning indoor training pitch, which will stand at just over 40 feet high.

Construction on the stand for the 499-seater show pitch is now underway.
Up to 1,640 tonnes of steel frameworks are expected to be installed throughout the coming months.

Large areas which are dedicated to the first team training pitches have been cleared as construction begins.

The training facility is set to provide an inspirational place of work for staff and players at the Football Club.

The main training centre and indoor pitch building will include a variety of facilities for players and staff.

Almost 900 reptiles and over 400 fish have been carefully translocated and re-homed to new locations, allowing the on-site staff to begin building larger structures.

Thirty-five bedrooms, rehabilitation facilities and a hydrotherapy pool are all also part of the masterplan.

Official opening Feyenoord Football Academy and the Sportclub Feyenoord (amateur section).

Yesterday the newly built complex "Nieuw Varkenoord" was officially opened. Already today the first matches will be played here.

It has become quite an impressive complex from which the Feyenoord Academy and the Sportclub Feyenoord can work together to further grow and improve in the future in every aspect of football and education.

This big step was very necessary since the facilities on the adjacent old complex were heavily outdated. And many clubs (also in The Netherlands) have surpassed with their new grounds what Feyenoord could offer for a long time. Now both the complexes (for the professional section last year and since yesterday for the Academy and the Sportclub) are among the best in the country.

There are still some things to do inside the building, and on the outside as well (also decorative elements will be added). Also the landscaping is not quite done yet. But within several weeks from now that is all expected to be finished.

The official opening was done by Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Robin van Persie, two of the most successful players coming from the Feyenoord Academy which are internationally famous now. :)

Dolphins break ground on new training facility in Miami-Dade

By:Kyle Crabbs | August 23, 2019 7:25 am ET

It has been a long time since the Miami Dolphins have practiced where they play, but that’s about to change. The Dolphins broke ground on Wednesday across the street from Hard Rock Stadium at the site of their new training facility, which is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2021. Hopefully the Dolphins will have an energized, successful team to pair with the new training facility, too.

The Dolphins have been practicing at the Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University for nearly 30 years — they made the transition there in 1993. But the Dolphins aren’t just looking at a return to practicing in the same vicinity as their stadium as a convenience to players. Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel explained this is a great opportunity to enhance the cohesion and culture of the Dolphins’ organization.

“Buildings don’t win championships, but cultures and environments do to some degree and coaches and players certainly do,” said Garfinkel. “If we can support the coaching staff and players with a better environment to work in, more efficient environment to work in, more resources around them, it can only be a good thing.”

Miami’s new facility is being described as “state of the art” — featuring all of the possible amenities players will need in order to train, recover and rehab, all in one central location.

Steel Frameworks Begin To Take Shape At New Training Facility


The construction of steel frameworks on the main building of Leicester City’s new state-of-the-art training facility is well underway as the Club’s vision for a world-class venue for their non-matchday football operation takes shape in north Leicestershire.

Investment in a training facility to rival the very best in Europe is the latest phase in the realisation of King Power International’s long-term vision for Leicester City.

The installation of extensive steel works – amounting to 1,640 tonnes – will continue over the next few months, allowing for concrete flooring to be added within the main building.

The training centre is designed to be a full-inclusive facility as the Club ensures its staff can operate in surroundings befitting its ambitions for the future.

While the walls and roof of the breath-taking indoor pitch will start to take shape shortly, foundations are also being laid for the 499-seater stand for the stunning on-site ‘show pitch’.

That venue has been specifically devised to allow Academy teams to sample an authentic matchday experience within the grounds of the Club's training facility.

Elsewhere, now the below-ground drainage is installed and the infrastructure for pitch drainage is established, fencing around the artificial pitches has also been constructed.

Work is underway on a large machine storage unit that will house a variety of specialist turf equipment for the pitches, golf course and landscaped areas. This building will also become the hub for energy distribution for pitch undersoil heating and a state-of-the-art irrigation system.

Further to this, the Sports Turf Academy building is now taking shape and brickwork has begun and the building is water tight. This will form a unique project to educate and train the next generation of sports turf students while offering support to local grassroots sports clubs to improve their playing surfaces.

An outline of the facility is now clearly visible as the earthworks for the first team car park and main entrance road are being laid.

Since our last update on the progress of the construction, local wildlife has now been safely translocated following their emergence from hibernation during the spring.

The careful translocation of wildlife included a process of providing new habitats for local birds, while 888 reptiles, including newts, have been safely moved to new homes.

In winter, over 400 fish were netted and rehomed to a new location elsewhere on site and 11 hectares of retained woodland will eventually be bolstered by the planting of 38,000 new trees.

All this has enabled the on-site team of workers to begin the formation of 11 full-size training pitches - as well as eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas.

Thirty bedrooms are also set to be built on-site before the development's completion, while rehabilitation facilities and a hydrotherapy pool are part of the masterplan.

It is a facility which promises to provide an inspirational place of work for the Club's staff and football professionals, strengthening Leicestershire's status as a home for world-class sport.

LCFC.com and LCFC TV will continue to provide updates on the development as Leicester City's exciting future becomes a reality in Charnwood.

Reading


READING have released aerial footage of their new £50m training facility, which will soon be home to their first team, Academy and women’s sides.

The Bearwood Park site, set over almost 120 acres, will host three full-size first-team pitches (with the same dimensions as the pitch at the Madejski Stadium), a floodlit artificial 3G pitch, goalkeeping practice area, first-team building and Academy facility.

The new training ground, which is five miles from the Madjeski, is three times bigger than Hogwood and will cost more than £50m to complete, according to the club.

Phase one was finished in July, when owner Yongge Dai said: “This new forward-thinking facility has been carefully researched and planned out. It has been designed to serve not only our first team, but also every age group in our Academy, our women’s team and our staff.

"Bearwood Park will help bring Reading Football Club even closer together. I believe this will be one of the very best training grounds in the country and I am delighted to open the gates to the first team for the first time this morning.”

Phase two, which involves completion of the buildings, is currently underway. It is envisaged that the first team will continue to train at Hogwood for the remainder of this season and a date has not yet been set for the site to become fully operational.
