One of the Premier League’s most popular teams has been hard at work building a new training complex. Today, it was announced by Liverpool that their new £50 Million Training Facility will be completed before the beginning of the 2020 – 2021 Season. Liverpool’s builders have created a modernized facility with state-of-the-art features, with released images indicating that progress is rushing. Liverpool also provided concept photos for how the training site will look by summer 2020.
Liverpool has located their new training complex in the Kirkby, which is located twenty minutes away from the metropolis city. The football sporting organization revealed that the compound is 9200 Square-Metres, with multiple fields and features to assist footballers with their training. This massive facility won’t only host the Liverpool Premier League Team but will also have all academies operating at the same site. This is the first time that the Academy and Professional teams will engage with each other in the club’s history.
Building progress indicates that the rate of speed has increased significantly, with all the internal and external brickwork being laid. Builders have begun completing the interior portion of the Liverpool Training Complex, while outdoor crews create the new training fields. Landscaping has already started before the winter-season, showing that Liverpool wants to finish all outdoor work before the snow comes down on England. These landscaping crews are using artificial fibre for the fields and surrounding grass, enabling for training to remain active throughout the winter season. Ground maintenance will include pitch irrigation and smaller sites for local children clubs.
Details on the Complex
Liverpool’s new training complex wouldn’t have been built if it wasn’t for Jurgen Klopp, the Head Manager for the Premier League team. He consulted the team’s owners and multiple city officials in regard towards a new complex. Working alongside architects and builders, he made numerous proposals for sites located around Liverpool. It would take two years before Kirkby would accept his bid.
Throughout development, Jurgen Klopp has mentioned multiple times that Liverpool’s longstanding history will be displayed throughout the training complex. Those training at this facility can expect two gyms, an indoor sports hall, hydrotherapy service, heated pool and sports rehabilitation services. There will also be a dedicated media centre with press conference rooms, a television studio and multiple offices. Outside of the facility, there will be two pavilions, stands for season pass holders and community areas to meet the players. However, Liverpool hasn’t announced which days the facility will be publicly open for seasons pass holders.
