Stoke City Football Club have modernised facilities at their Clayton Wood training ground to help reach Category One status in the Premier League-driven Elite Player Performance Plan.
The site, which is the main training ground for the first team squad, will include modern and technologically advanced facilities on a par with Premier League clubs.
The 1,800-square metre site incorporates a full-sized indoor pitch. It also offers nine spacious changing rooms, office accommodation, a medical centre, gymnasium, hydrotherapy suite, dining area and press room. The addition of classrooms to the building means the site can now become home to the Club’s football academy.
Forterra supplied Butterley’s Dark Multi Smooth for the development of the club’s training building. Manufactured in the UK at Forterra’s Wilnecote brickworks, this 150-year-old brand provided a perfect, smooth finish and clean lines to complement the building’s glass panels and metallic cladding.
Stoke FC’s investment and regeneration of its facilities has earned it two construction awards: The Local Area Building Council (LABC) Business Excellence Awards for 2014 for the West Midlands, Staffordshire and Shropshire.
