The project comprises an outdoor athletics track and field with spectator stand, together with an indoor training facility to replace the accommodation previously located at the site of the new ‘White Rock’ stadium at Morfa. The project replaces the existing athletics track at the University of Wales Swansea (adjacent to the new Wales National Pool) and occupies part of the King George V playing fields accessed from Mumbles Road.
The indoor training facilities incorporates a 60m 6 lane spring track, long jump, high jump, pole vault, javelin and throws training areas, together with changing facilities for the new ‘Global’ standard water based hockey pitches. The indoor and outdoor facilities will be provided to a standard suitable for national competition although their primary role will be for training.
