Next Fairwood phase complete
22nd December 2016
Swansea City will go into the New Year perfectly prepared for a renewed Premier League push after the completion of another phase of major training ground developments at Fairwood.
The latest multi-million pound development at the club's training base sees the opening of a new extension that houses a new refectory, gym, changing rooms, altitude chamber, treatment room, analysis suite, auditorium, meeting rooms, kit store, boot room and hydro pool.
With a new spend of £5m, it takes the total investment in the training facilities at Fairwood to roughly £10.5m and gives Bob Bradley's men the latest state-of-the-art facilities to prepare for the second half of the Premier League campaign.
Swans chairman, Huw Jenkins, said: "We have invested heavily in our training facilities over the last few years, especially since we have been in the Premier League.
"It wasn't too long ago that we were begging and borrowing to use other people's facilities to train, so we have come a long way in a short period of time.
"Coupled with the investment we have made to the Academy training facilities at Landore, this latest phase development at Fairwood takes us to another level and will stand this football club in good stead for the future.
"The environment the first team and Under-23s now have to work in at Fairwood is first class and I'm sure we will reap the rewards in the short and long term.
"Swansea City Football Club finally has its own training complex to be very, very proud of."
The investment is set to continue with the completion of a designated media centre and new groundstaff machinery store and office in the New Year.
