Rubb Buildings Ltd’s design team proved to be in a league of their own after completing the Newcastle United indoor training facility.
Academy development players, as well as members of the first team, have been able to use the building to train in perfect conditions whatever the weather.
Rubb Buildings Ltd first approached Newcastle United with the idea of using a Rubb indoor football training facilityafter hearing that the club was looking for an indoor training centre as an integral part of its football academy. After discussing proposals for the building the client was impressed with what Rubb UK could offer and invited us onboard to complete the project.
The 67m span by 90m long building houses a full sized indoor football pitch and is located at the club’s training centre in Longbenton, Newcastle.
This Rubb football building was tailor-made to Newcastle United’s own specification and requirements, while falling in line with local planning restrictions.
Newcastle United FC needed an area that was large enough to hold a full sized pitch and high enough to provide headroom for throw-ins and free kicks. In addition the building needed to be in place within a fairly short time-frame.
