Celtic plan new indoor training centre

Posted on by in Weekly News

Celtic Football Club has applied for planning permission to redevelop its training centre in the East End of Glasgow.

The work at the Barrowfield site, located near to Celtic Park, would see the club unveil new training facilities, including one of the largest indoor football arenas in Scotland, featuring a FIFA approved top-of-the-range full-sized artificial surface.

The new development will also feature a state-of-the-art gymnasium, as well as brand new extended parking and changing facilities.

A further phase of the development would also see the construction of new refreshment and grandstand facilities for spectators.

The club said the new indoor facility will allow excellent training opportunities, particularly in poor weather for the Celtic first team as well as the women’s and all academy teams.

The new development will complement Celtic’s established first team training base at Lennoxtown, which was opened in 2007.

Architects Holmes Miller said the proposal consists of a modest, modern building set a significant distance from the main road, and within a wider recreational area.

It will have no significant detrimental impact on either existing residents, amenity or traffic. Rather, the proposal will enhance the facilities on offer at the training ground, improving health and well-being.
