by Apr 29, 2022

It has been all smiles for our Norwich scholars based at the Football Development Centre Norwich recently, as they have been able to train and play on the newly opened 4G Harrod Sport Arena.

Scholars have been taking to the pitch for training sessions, matchdays and educational practical sessions as they study towards their diploma qualifications as part of our further education programme in Norwich.

The new 4G Harrods Arena is part of a £1.75 million pound investment at the FDC Norwich which also includes further hospitality and education facilities and improvements to the current five and seven aside pitches.

To see the effort everyone at the FDC, Norfolk FA, Football Foundation and partners have put in to make this development happen is absolutely fantastic for the area. Not only does it offer our scholars the opportunity to enhance their education and player development even further, but more importantly this is a facility that brings football to all within the community. Something the FDC and Norfolk FA already deliver to an exceptional standard.
