Indoor Football Pitch

USW Football Facilities

USW Sport Park is a state-of-the-art coaching and performance development centre located a few miles away from the Treforest Campus. The Sport Park is set over 30-acres of playing fields, with five grass football pitches, a floodlit, sand-dressed astroturf pitch, and a full size, floodlit FIFA approved 3G pitch. Our facilities are state-of-the-art, and specially designed for sporting performance focusing on football and rugby coaching. 

The brand new, full size indoor 3G football pitch is built to FIFA Pro standards. Only three universities in the UK have facilities like these and USW is one of them. It will allow training all year round and fantastic opportunities for all of our football coaching students. There are 6 cameras across the roof of the pitch constantly filming so students can look back over sessions and use it for notational analysis and performance reviewing.

Our facilities are regularly used by international and professional teams, such as the Wales Women's National Football team and Cardiff City Football Club. The touring New Zealand, South African and Australian rugby squads have also trained here. Cardiff City Football Club Academy is based at our Sport Park, and we are a training base for Wales netball and Howardian ladies national league hockey.
