County Sports Ground

Worcester City Council Gives Green Light for Claines Lane Renovation

Planning approval received for proposed development of The County Sports Ground.

Worcestershire FA is pleased to announce that it has received planning permission for the proposed County Sports Ground development.

At the end of October, we revealed plans to develop the site, situated at Claines Lane, Worcester, in an ambitious move which would see us switch our headquarters to a state of the art facility in late 2019.

Worcester City Council have now approved these plans, which consist of: creating a brand new community 3G playing surface; upgrading the current grass pitch from FA Step 7 to Step 6 standard (including the instalment of floodlights and a small covered seating area); and upgrading the changing rooms in a new building space (which will also include: community areas, office areas, and training facilities).
