LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Manchester United recently opened a cutting-edge training center at their Carrington Training Centre, intended for use by the women’s team and academy squads.
The construction of the high-performance training centre was completed in time for the current Women’s Super League season.
The women’s team will call this facility their permanent home, while the boys’ academy teams will have access to a dedicated gym, which also includes office spaces for support staff.
This development aligns with Manchester United’s broader strategy to invest substantially in upgrading their facilities for players.
Among the notable features of the new training centre are a state-of-the-art gym, rehabilitation zones equipped with a jacuzzi, and spacious changing rooms, along with kit and boot areas specially designed for the women’s team.
Additionally, there is a players’ lounge and restaurant, complete with a live cooking area for the women’s team to enjoy.
Collette Roche, Chief Operating Officer at Manchester United, expressed the club’s dedication to continuously enhancing their facilities.
She emphasized that the new training centre is a prime example of the club’s ongoing commitment to providing the best possible environments for all of their teams to succeed.
The investment in this training centre is part of a broader £20 million effort made by Manchester United to improve their facilities within the past year.
As the women’s team prepares for their next challenge in the Champions League qualifiers against Paris Saint-Germain, Erik ten Hag’s men’s team is gearing up to face Sheffield United in the Premier League this Saturday.
