Newcastle have today announced a stunning new state of the art complex to be built at the current Benton training center, and work will start on it in eighteen months time, and it will take just over six months to complete and will be ready in early 2016.
This shows Newcastle do have ambition.
Director of Football Joe Kinnear – will help attract players
Here is a statement from the club today:
“Newcastle United Football Club have announced plans for a stunning new state-of-the-art training complex as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the club’s existing 35-acre training ground site.”
“The current intention is that work will get underway in May 2015 and when complete in early 2016, the Magpies will occupy one of the finest training facilities of its kind in Europe.”
“While existing training pitches and a modern indoor training hall will be retained, the club’s current Training Center building will be demolished and replaced by a much larger, high-tech structure.”
“It will accommodate newly-designed changing, training, rehabilitation, medical, leisure and catering facilities and will also introduce the latest aquatic technology to the site, with a 20-meter swimming pool, a hydrotherapy and fitness pool and specialist equipment to aid injury prevention and recovery.”
“The new construction will also create a fitness center double the size of the Club’s existing gymnasium, as well as administrative space, a presentation suite for match analysis and a new media suite.”
Newcastle Director of Football Joe Kinnear spoke of the significance of the new state of the art Newcastle training center:
“This is a hugely exciting development for Newcastle United. We have one of football’s great stadiums and we are delighted to now be announcing plans for a training complex which will rival any in Europe.”
“Top players and top teams need top training and medical facilities. Our current training ground has served the club very well but the new complex will give us all of the ingredients that we need to continue maintaining and enhancing the performance of elite footballers.”
“It will also be an added attraction when we are looking to recruit players.”
So after the training complex is complete, Newcastle will have one of the best stadiums and one of best training facilities of any club in Europe.
In short – that is fantastic.
Now we need to get into that Champions League.
