Cardiff Blues set for training ground move

Posted by

Cardiff Blues are set to have a training ground shake-up as they temporarily move away from The Vale Resort while a purpose built facility is constructed.

The club confirmed a few weeks ago that they were in talks to leave the facilities they currently share with Cardiff City, as the football club head to a new training ground of their own, with the Football Association of Wales keen to take over their lease.

This now appears to be going ahead as Cardiff Blues make arrangements to train between the Arms Park and Sophia Gardens for next season, before returning to The Vale in their new training base next summer.

WalesOnline have gone into some detail about plans to convert the current club shop and Martyn Williams Pack Bar area into a gym facility, as well as create a temporary medical facility, while using the Arms Park clubhouse for media duties.

They will then split on-field training between a grass pitch at Sophia Gardens and the plastic pitch at the Arms Park, as and when it is necessary.

At the time of confirming talks were ongoing regarding a training ground move, Cardiff Blues stressed that it would only make changes if the rugby department were in agreement and it benefitted the business.
