The state-of-the-art Robins High Performance Centre was officially opened ahead of Bristol City’s first pre-season encounter, when the club hosted Celtic on Wednesday 14 July.
City Owner Steve Lansdown and President Marina Dolman did the honours as the red ribbon was cut next to the all-new show pitch.
The multimillion-pound RHPC, designed by architects KKA, opened its doors for the first time in March and since the squad returned for pre-season in late July, it has been home to both first team and Academy players and staff.
“These facilities are to give us
the groundwork to go forward as a club,
to reach the top level and become
a top team in the Premier League.”
The project has been a long-time in the making for Steve Lansdown. “It is a great honour to officially open the Robins High Performance Centre,” he said, “Thanks go out to all of the contractors involved in this during a very difficult period but we saw it through and we came through on budget. Everyone has done a fantastic job.”
“These facilities are to give us the groundwork to go forward as a club, to reach the top level and become a top team in the Premier League and I am delighted with the product we have here,” he added. “I have to thank our former CEO Mark Ashton who did an awful lot of work to get the Robins High Performance Centre up and running, so thank you must go out to everyone who has supported the club throughout the build of the Centre.”
