St Georges Park

Burton upon Trent

Every young boy’s dream is scoring a goal for England – and to be chosen as the firm to bring the St George’s Park national football centre to life is the architects’ equivalent of a hat trick… in the world cup final.
St George’s Park is the training ground of all 24 of the England teams, and enjoys a fitting location on a 330 acre site in the heart of the English National Forest, populated with ancient oak trees, and abundant wildlife.
Chosen against stiff competition from big name practices and adopting their usual ‘lets make it happen’ attitude, redboxdesigngroup Chairman Alan J Smith worked closely alongside with the Board of the National Football Centre to secure approval of a 230 bed Hilton hotel with conferencing, banqueting, leisure and spa facilities, and a unique football facility which will focus on coaching and education, including sports science and sports medicine facilities that will be operated by Spire, under a new name Perform.
As well as being the FA’s national facility for education, coaching and development, ultimately it will also become a university of football – second to none.
David Sheepshanks, National Football Centre Board Chairman, said: “In Wembley we have a world class stadium, and in St George’s Park we have the place to inspire world class performance.”
