Leicester City’s New Training Ground

A football club that shocked the sporting world when it unexpectedly won the Premier League in 2016 is developing a new training ground using British Steel sections.

Leicester City's new £95m training ground will provide the team with state-of-the-art facilities.

More than 450 tonnes of sections from British Steel’s Teesside Beam Mill at Lackenby have been delivered to the 185 acre development, off the A46, near Seagrave.

The project is being led by construction specialists McLaren and includes 11 full-size outdoor pitches, eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas. The indoor facilities include 35 bedrooms, a hydrotherapy pool, rehabilitation facilities and dining areas for the club’s academy and first team, as well as administration offices and a media centre. Next to the main building is a full-size indoor artificial pitch.

Structural steelwork experts BHC are responsible for fabricating and erecting the structure.

“Our structural sections are certified to a high standard and are the premier choice for sports venues, high-rise buildings and construction projects that require strength and resilience,” said Ben Cunliffe, Commercial Director, British Steel.

“We’re proud to work with structural steelwork experts BHC, on this impressive training site for Leicester City Football Club.”

BHC Project Manager Patrick Cranskens said: “BHC is proud to have been selected by McLaren for the fabrication and installation of the structural steelwork on such an exciting project.”
