Following our re-selection to the Football Foundation AGP Framework 2020-2024, S&C Slatter and FieldTurf are thrilled to hand over our first completed project of the new funding cycle.
The new sports facility, delivered for Racing Club Warwick, includes a brand new, full-sized 3G pitch for football complete with fencing, footpaths and spectator seating. The pitch features artificial turf from our exclusive partners FieldTurf, FIFA Preferred Turf Producers.
Racing Club Warwick are a football club based in Warwickshire, currently playing in the Midland League Premier Division (Step 5 of the National League System). Following promotion in their 2018-19 season, the club made plans to construct a new 3G Pitch, not only to further the growth of the club but to serve the wider community as a whole.
At the time of the announcement, Club Chairman Gary Vella commented:
“The pitch will be a real community facility, linking in with other Junior clubs and partners from within the local area to provide a facility that is accessible for all. The new pitch will give us a top-quality playing surface for our first team, every day of the week, and allows Racing’s teams to host all of our training and games, expand the academy and offer facilities to other Junior sides in the area. It is an exciting and huge project, which is just the next phase of our plans to develop Townsend Meadow into a true community hub”.
Racing Club Warwick are the first of our clients under the new cycle to benefit from Football Foundation funding to realise their project.
As existing suppliers to the 2015-2019 Football Foundation AGP Framework, S&C Slatter and FieldTurf have proudly delivered transformational new facilities for schools, councils and community clubs alike.
With a further 9 projects underway for the new Football Foundation AGP Framework this year, we’re thrilled to have delivered our first under the new programme and look forward to continuing to deliver first-class sporting facilities that serve communities across the country.
We wish The Racers all the very best with their new pitch and are sure those in the local community will be racing to the new facility when coronavirus restrictions ease!
