■ Newcastle United academy Newcastle, UK Opening: 2016


Newcastle United Football Club has unveiled plans for a new state-of-the-art training complex as part of a multi-mil- lion pound redevelopment of the club’s existing 35-acre training ground site. According to an announcement


on the club’s website, the current intention is that work will get underway in May 2015 and should be completed in early 2016. While existing training pitches and a modern indoor training hall will be retained, the club’s current training centre building will be demolished and replaced by a much larger structure. This will accommodate newly- designed changing, training, rehabilitation, medical, leisure and catering facilities, plus a 20m swimming pool, a hydrotherapy and fi tness pool and specialist equipment to aid injury prevention and recovery. The project will also create a fi tness


centre double the size of the club’s existing gymnasium, as well as admin- istrative space, a presentation suite for match analysis and a new media suite. Details: http://lei.sr?a=j3P6S
