We are delighted to announce that we have secured our very own facility to host all of our UK training camps which can cater to all age groups with our robotic line marker able to line 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 pitches at a moments notice. Additional training lines & goalkeepers areas can be marked out on request and the facility also features an 11v11 Astroturf pitch for any additional work the team needs.
The Facility is located in Stevenage just off the A1 (roughly 30 miles from the middle of London), 16 miles from London Luton airport and 42 miles from London Heathrow Airport. We are located in the middle of Stevenage meaning there are many hotels within a 5 minute coach transport or a 20 minute walk through the town and the train station is just 20 minutes into the middle of London (Kings Cross/ St Pancras).
We are able to organise everything for the teams from Hotel Accommodation & Local Transport to Friendly Fixtures and any Sightseeing opportunities the teams wish to take part in their spare time (Emirates Stadium 15 direct train).
Friendly fixtures can be arranged at our training facility or away for teams who wish to visit English clubs training grounds and are contacts cover nearly every professional club in England including Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City & Liverpool all the way down to the local non professional sides.
Our facility is available to hire on a session to session basis with 2 time slots each day (10:00am - 11:30am & 2:00pm - 3:30pm). During Pre Season we have our grass pitch are set up with 1 x 1v11 pitch, 1x goalkeeper penalty box & keep ball squares for warm ups etc.
On Top of training sessions we can also help teams arrange friendly fixtures whilst in England either at our training facility or away. We work with 90% of the football league sides in England and some non professional teams so can ensure you play against competitive opposition.
We can also arrange everything whilst in England for teams from transport to hotel accommodation and meals. This package ensures the team is taken care of from the moment they arrive until they leave and can create bespoke packages to include cultural / sightseeing trips.
As the UK is notorious for bad weather in the winter months, any training camps taking place from October - February must take place on our Astroturf pitch to preserve the grass pitches for our busy summer months.
From March - September our grass pitches will be available for all domestic and International teams to travel for a training camp where we can facilitate all age groups and arrange competitive fixtures both at our facility and elsewhere.
