Construction on the new artificial grass pitch at Victoria Park will begin this September 2020. With a synthetic grass surface, floodlights, security fencing, controlled gates, cycle parking and access paths to and from the Asics stadium - this is going to be a top facility for the town.
Catering for rugby league, it will also double up for 11-a-side, 7-a-side and 5-a-side football. Part-funded by the Rugby League World Cup 2021 Legacy Funding and Sport England, this facility will have a particular focus on women, girls and disability sport. It will also further complement the already superb on-site sports provision.
The anticipated completion date for this construction is December 2020.
The project forms part of the Central 6 Masterplan.
