House of sport started

Building of Citys house of sport as been started in llanrumney....

Work has started on the huge new site set to house Cardiff City's academy as well as local and Cardiff University's sports teams in Llanrumney.

The collaboration between the Bluebirds, Cardiff Council and Cardiff University will see a state-of-the-art sports complex built to serve Cardiff University and the Llanrumney community sports Trust.

The complex will also be for the use of all the local residents and will be shared between Cardiff University, Cardiff Council, rugby clubs and Cardiff City FC.

Cardiff Council will remain the owners and will allow all the different sports in the Cardiff area to use the facilities.

The project will include a tier-two 3G football facility, a floodlit, 3G, World Rugby-standard rugby pitch and another dual floodlit football and rugby pitch which will have pitch markings for both sports.


The site will have a two storey building with learning facilities, included in the construction, with the plan to take over the old Doctor Who building and create a learning environment with classrooms for the youngsters who attend college.

House of Sport director Steve Borley:

"Finally, after a lot of hard work between all parties we are now able to deliver on our bold ambition to provide a sustainable multi-purpose facility in the east of Cardiff. There are huge benefits for all including Cardiff University students, Cardiff City Academy and especially the local sports clubs. I wish to thank our partners in the project - Cardiff University and Cardiff council - for recognising the benefits in joining forces in this collaborative investment.”



Speaking about its wider impact on the area in the east of Cardiff, Councillor Russell Goodway, Cabinet Member for Investment and Development at Cardiff Council, said: “This new state-of-the-art facility will not only benefit students from Cardiff University and the Cardiff City Football Academy, but the wider community of Llanrumney, as local rugby and football clubs will have access to the facility.

“The project is an excellent example of partnership working and is an important part of the Council’s strategy to improve Llanrumney, which also includes new housing schemes and a bridge to connect directly into the A48.”

Cardiff University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education and Students, Claire Morgan, said: “I am absolutely delighted that work has begun on this significant upgrade to our sports facilities, which will see them transformed into some of the best sport pitch provision in the UK.”

“This project offers a much-needed boost for our students’ sporting experience. It means more students will be able to benefit from sport which we know can help enhance and maintain mental health, boost academic achievement, and increase employability prospects.”

We got a mystery moderator? :mrgreen:
But it appears after many years of neglect facilities are now being put in place for club to progress... I know club is trying to get cat 1 for academy if that comes off only need for playing side to deliver and maybe just maybe club as a long term strategy to be successful ? But think that will need to be under new ownership

I know it's in collaboration with various organisations but surely it shows a certain commitment to the club by the regime doesn't it?

All good news. The facility sounds a great asset for the area as well. Hopefully this facility will help bring on future homegrown stars like in the past

Yes I was thinking that, or the pitch dug up or motorbikes accross it, they will need good security it's a bit out of the way, but no doubt thats in hand.

Allan, it is certainly a positive that it is happening and the club must be heavily committed to it, which I guess can be seen as 'mixed signals' as to their intentions

Collaboration with other stakeholders is (rightly) the modern way and in many ways protects the project regardless of the current situation at the club

I genuinely don't know how 'committed' Vincent Tan is to the whole Cardiff City FC project currently but I do see that he continues to bankroll the club during tough times for all, including him in a business sense, to ensure we survive and avoid the ignomy of possible FFP breaches that other similar sized clubs are experiencing

My understanding is that he continues to seek a buyer and as reported previously, early talks have taken place with more than one party

Only time will tell how that progresses, if at all, but in the meantime the new project is to be applauded, if we are to have a more self-sustainable future :ayatollah:

Chris things are progressing to make the club more of an attractive purchase for an ambitious owner with the funds to expand on what club as already done... real shame couldn't get things right regarding managers and players such mistakes have proved very costly for tan but largely it's his own fault or naivety on football matters.

With you on that. It seems that there’s been a lot of activity going on behind the scenes to rebuild the club structure into a more cohesive and forward looking one. Whoever’s idea it has been. But on a wider view, adding this to the existing facilities at Cyncoed UWIC and the sporting academic and research reputation they’ve been building over the years. It could be making Cardiff an attractive sports Uni destination. Which can only be good for the club and our fair City
