Bristol City to get new state of the art training facility

'Bristol Res' Blog • 13 September 2018

Plans were approved this week by North Somerset Council for Bristol City’s state of the art training facility to be built at Failand.

The facility, which will be situated within 2 miles of the Ashton Gate stadium, will include three full-size pitches, a 500 seater stand, seven-a-side and goalkeeping pitches, a medical centre, gym, sports science facility and space for physiotherapists and coaches. Also on the site will be changing rooms, a kitchen and dining area, grounsdman’s compound, 142 parking spaces and a coach drop-off site

Matthew Kendrick, who represented the football club at the planning meeting, claimed that approving the plans would help Bristol City into the Premier League “not by buying it, but by nurturing young talent”, and stated that the new training ground would be an “elite facility’.

The training ground will combine training facilities for City’s first team and academy players and their staff. This will allow the first team and under 23s to train together on the same site for the first time and, according to plans, “enhance the pathway from Academy to first team”.
