Amazing new facilities 

USW Sport students are now learning in their new facilities. These incredible facilities provide our students with the very best environment in which to learn, grow and become professional coaches and analysts.

Our brand new full size indoor pitch is your classroom for the next three years! This incredible FIFA 2-star pitch - one of three in the UK run by universities and the only one in Wales - meets all the requirements of the B license for football coaching which is embedded in to our football courses. Studying rugby? Built to the World Rugby 22 standard, the pitch has a shock pad underneath so it will play better, last longer and provide a safer playing environment.

Our new specialist centre for strength and conditioning provides 12 lifting platforms for our students so an entire rugby or football squad can train together. The floor is integrated with the platforms so that it can support the heavy weights our athletes will be using.
