Colchester United Football Club

We designed and built a full-size indoor 3G training pitch for Colchester United Football Club, a facility that helps them maximise training opportunities all year round.

Colchester United Football Club

A new solution to an age-old problem

Collinson was brought on board by Colchester United after years of training schedules being disrupted by waterlogged training pitches.


The new facility enables them to train indoors all-year round on a full-size 3G pitch which can easily be zoned for specific training sessions.

Helping our client to raise the game

Not only has it provided the club with a cost-effective, low maintenance indoor sports pitch, it has allowed them to achieve other footballing and commercial goals.


For example, it helped the club to achieve Category 2 status for its academy following an audit from the Premier League.

The Premier League assesses all Football League clubs as part of its mission to improve the quality and quantity of ‘home-grown’ elite players.


The indoor facility was the main thing we needed to have to get Category 2 status. The Premier League came and inspected it a couple of weeks ago and it’s been confirmed.

"It’s an absolutely fantastic facility and it’s already saved the club a couple of times recently with the rain we’ve had and the pitches at Florence Park not being fantastic because of that. It’s already paying dividends."
