Formerly known as the Robins High Performance Centre, the Bristol City High Performance Centre officially opened ahead of the first preseason game in Bristol City when the club hosted Celtic. The multi-million-pound arena was designed by KKA architects and has undergone a lot of changes, especially in home fixtures, since the early days. It has been home to the first team partners, academy and management staff since the team returned to preseason in late July, until the Bristol City Women’s league took over and made it their base for their home game.
The £20 million estimated facility includes three full-size playing fields, including an illuminated playing field to host the club’s U18 and U23 games. There are also bleachers, goalkeeper and tactical positions, medical and rehabilitation facilities, a gym, a sports science facility, and space for physical therapists and coaches. The Bristol City Women’s team calls this area home while Ashton Gate stadium remains home for the Bristol City FC training ground and court for their matches.
