The University of Hull has been awarded £500,000 by the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund to help create a new football hub as part of a £15 million investment in the University’s sports facilities, currently underway.

Within the investment, a £1.8 million footballing facility is being created, including a changing room pavilion and third generation (3G) artificial grass pitch (AGP) with the aim of creating a football hub for the University, as well as the city of Hull and the East Riding.

The new pavilion will include changing facilities, as well as classrooms and a physiotherapy room. It will be built on the pitches off Inglemire Lane, to the north of the campus.

The £500,000 investment from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund will be split between the new changing pavilion facilities and the 3G AGP.
