Despite the uncertainty and challenges over the past 12 months Perform Better have carried out some of the most prestigious Football Club Training Ground installations in both the UK and Europe.
LEICESTER CITY FC
In December 2020 work was completed on the new £100m training ground facility on a 185-acre site in Seagrave, which includes an indoor training centre featuring an indoor pool, rehab facilities, 1st team and Academy gyms and 35 bedrooms. In addition, 11 full-size pitches, including one show pitch with a 499-seater stand, a full-size indoor pitch, eight smaller pitches, five training grids, two goalkeeping areas, and a sports turf academy. Perform Better worked closely with the Leicester City FC 1st team and Academy Performance teams to plan and design both gym facilities.
AS MONACO FC
The state-of-the-art AS Monaco FC Training ground is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful training grounds in the world, situated overlooking the Principality. The seven-floor 12,000 sqm training ground includes hydrotherapy, cryotherapy, 3D imaging facilities and a wide range of other services. The 300sqm Strength and Conditioning suite was equipped by Team PB, selected due to our vast experience of equipping many of the Premier League Training Ground facilities. The Perform Better designers have worked closely with the AS Monaco performance team to create a world-class performance facility.
BRISTOL CITY FC
Bristol City’s high-performance centre includes a strength and conditioning gym, hydrotherapy pool, changing rooms, medical and rehabilitation facilities, a tactics room and office space, as well as education and welfare facilities for the Club’s young players. In addition, a floodlit show pitch, capable of hosting the club’s Under-18 and Under-23 matches, two other full-size pitches and two further training areas. The site is next to what is now the old training ground, with the construction of the facility having taken 13 months. In total, from conception to completion, the project took six years. Perform Better supplied all the Strength, Free Weight and Cardio equipment for the facility along with the flooring for the Gym and Studio plus the Testing equipment for the Environmental chamber.
The Bearwood Park site, set over almost 120 acres, includes the 1st team building and Academy facility, three full-size first-team pitches, a floodlit artificial 3G pitch, goalkeeping practice area, the new training ground, which is five miles from the Madjeski and is three times bigger than the old Hogwood training ground, and cost more than £50m to complete.
