Located near Burton-Upon-Trent in the heart of England, the home of the new National Football Centre, St. George’s Park was formally opened this week.

Eleven external pitches, five of which have floodlighting and undersoil heating will play host to full-size and seven-a-side elite football and coaching for all age groups. A further full size 3G pitch is located in the state of the art indoor facility which accommodates a multi sport indoor hall, with a 60m x 40m sprung floor with capacity for Futsal and partially-sighted football.

To furnish the pitches of such a world class facility, the FA called on the UK’s leading sports equipment manufacturer Harrod UK to provide Football Goals and Team Shelters for all of the external and indoor facilities.

Harrod UK have vast experience of supplying the Country’s most prestigious football venues, most notably Wembley Stadium and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Sales and Marketing Director, Les Saunders commented “2012 has been a fantastic year for “Made in Britain” and the summer games epitomized what the UK is capable of; we were very privileged to play a small part in their huge success. To supply another World Class venue like St Georges Park so soon after London 2012 is truly the icing on the cake for our company.”
