The First Team management, coaching staff and players today (Friday) visited the site of our new world-class training centre at Bull’s Cross, Enfield.
After being taken via coach around the perimeter of the first-team training pitches, the lads were given a guided walk-through of the main building, which is now taking starting to take shape.
During the tour, they were able to view the structures that will become their changing rooms, the fitness and medical suite including the pool and gym, dining areas and relaxation lounges once the state-of-the-art facility opens next year.
Harry Redknapp said:
“Absolutely fantastic. What a facility for players to come and work in every day and for young players who are thinking about coming to Spurs. You won’t find a better training facility than this anywhere. It’s got everything a player would need – top class facilities and fantastic pitches. Hopefully we can create a great atmosphere around the place when we move here to match the facility.”
Michael Dawson said:
“It’s fantastic. It’s still a year away from being finished, but when you look at the plans and you see it already taking shape, you know it’s going to be special. We’re a top team and we need top facilities, and it will all be here, and the players are going to benefit from it.”
The Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre
The new world-class training centre, due for completion in 2012, will be the new home for the Club’s First Team and Youth Academy. It will also provide an additional base for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, the Club’s charity engaged in sport-related community work.
The new state-of-the-art training centre will include:
· 11 outdoor pitches - one artificial pitch and ten natural grass. The main pitch to the professional squad area will be designed to the same quality and design as the pitch proposed for the New Spurs Stadium; complete with undersoil heating.
· A two storey training centre, which also has a basement, which has been designed by architects KSS to be an integral part of the landscape. The building has been designed around a 70 x 50m indoor artificial pitch which features a transparent ETFE roof similar to the EDEN project in Cornwall.
· The building, which is being built by McLaren Construction, also incorporates a learning centre for the Academy and educational space, medical facilities, a hydrotherapy / swimming pool, fitness centre/gym, changing rooms, a canteen and media centre.
