Leicester City have officially unveiled their breathtaking new training ground, with the players to move in on Christmas Eve. After two years of work at the 185-acre site in Seagrave, City will now make the £100m facility their home. Across the former Park Hill Golf Club are 21 training areas, including 14 full-size pitches and a 499-seater show pitch for youth team games.
It is the culmination of a long-held dream, City chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said in a statement. "The club has taken some enormous strides forward in the last 10 years," he said. "In terms of our long-term future, this is perhaps the biggest. A new training ground has been a dream many years in the making, so it is with great pride that we have been able to deliver this. Seagrave will be a pivotal part of the club’s operation for generations to come."
