My only question is, what happened to our other development plans that were happening over the last 11 years??

Cardiff City submit plans for huge state-of-the-art academy complex that will transform well-known area

Friday 20th November 2020

The Bluebirds have submitted their application for the construction of a new sports complex in Llanrumney, where their academy will be based

Cardiff City have submitted their planning application to construct a new, state-of-the-art sports complex at Llanrumney fields.

It is the latest in a series of strides being taken by the Bluebirds hierarchy to make the club's academy a real force in this corner of the world.

Here, we take a look at what this new site includes, what the men at the top think and the other recent developments within the academy which will hopefully serve to better the production line in years to come...

The Llanrumney Sports Complex

Cardiff City have teamed up with Cardiff Council and Cardiff university to drum up the idea for a top-end sports site to serve not only the Bluebirds, but local Llanrumney football and rugby clubs as well as the university's sports teams.

The 16-acre complex, which will become Cardiff City academy's permanent new home, will include a tier-two 3G football facility, a floodlit 3G rugby pitch, another dual floodlit football and rugby pitch (with pitch markings for both sports) with further plans to implement a hockey pitch.

There will also be learning facilities included in the construction, with the plan to take over the old Dr Who building and create a learning environment with classrooms for the youngsters who attend college.

The two-storey building will include offices, a lecture theatre, canteen, changing rooms and a gym. The building will also house an indoor academy-standard 3G training pitch, in addition to five full size grass pitches, a 3G tier-two standard pitch and a goalkeeper-specific training area.

The community facilities will occupy where the old Llanrumney High School playing fields are and will include a new building with changing facilities for the Llanrumney-based sports teams.

Subject to final approvals, it’s hoped the work on the site will commence in late 2020 with the all-weather pitches expected to be available for use by the end of 2021.

All four existing House of Sport sites will continue to run alongside the new Llanrumney development.
