McLaren previews state-of-the-art Leicester City training centre

5 February 2020

McLaren will host a site visit at Leicester City Football Club’s new training centre, on Wednesday 1 April.

The centre, which is to complete in June, is set to become one of the most modern, state-of-the-art training facilities in Europe.

The 75ha campus, in Charnwood, Leicestershire, includes 12 full-size outdoor football pitches, eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeper training areas.

Facilities include a 30-bedroom hotel, a hydrotherapy pool, rehabilitation facilities and dining areas for the club’s academy and first team, as well as offices and a media centre.

Next to the main training centre is a full-size indoor artificial pitch, which acts as a hub for the club’s first team training regime, providing year-round training and integration with performance-monitoring technology.

The complex also includes a Sports Turf Academy, to offer full training to the next generation of ground staff and landscape architects.

If you would like to visit these groundbreaking facilities before the project is completed, please book now as numbers are limited.

This event is free to all members and non-members of the CIOB.
