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.
