It’s been over a decade and £25 million in the making, but the FA’s brand-spanking new National Football Centre, St Georges’ Park in Burton upon Trent, is now on course to open in August of this year.

The FA and long-time partner Umbro have both invested heavily in the project and the latter have produced this virtual tour so that mere proles like you and I can have a snufty inside the new facilities – facilities that include 12 full-size football pitches, two Hilton hotels, a huge indoor sports hall, hydrotherapy suites, classrooms and seminar halls, several gyms, ‘bespoke head tennis courts’, sand pits, sweat boxes and an all important ‘bleep test zone’…

Very swish. That bleep test zone is going to win us a World Cup some day.

  2. Mr. Sparkle says:

    Does everything in Britain take nearly a decade to build?

  3. Huy says:

    still not not going to win anything

  4. Mr. Sparkle says:

    Hold on did the video say heart in the national forest? I don’t see a lot of trees around that damn place.

  5. LCFC says:

    Spend these millions redeveloping the structure of youth football in England. It needs a complete revamp and money spent designing and implementing, not on a world class facility for an under-performing and frankly average side.

  6. Jonkops says:

    @ Mr. Sparkle: Thats because they knocked the trees down to make the facility

    I saw a trophy cabinet in that video, but it had stuff in it. What’s the deal with that? You’ve got one trophy.
