KSS, specialists in the design of major sports venues and training facilities, have just completed the Concept Design stage for the new Riga FC Football Training Camp. Riga FC is dominant in the Latvian Higher League, and twice recent champions, securing UEFA Champions League qualification.
The new Training Centre for Riga FC is the centrepiece of a wider multi-phased Football Camp development, which includes a full-size indoor pitch with 1,000-seat spectator capacity, a UEFA Category 2 Stadium, hotel and spa.
The site is also a base for community football with significant provision for the strong youth programme, with changing suites and dedicated pitches.
The Training Centre proposals include state-of-the-art fitness, recovery and rehabilitation facilities exclusively for the club’s elite first-team squad, including external playing pitches, skills areas and dedicated goalkeeper training.
KSS Director, Andy Simons, said:
We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to apply our extensive knowledge in this field to a new market and this facility will certainly secure Riga FC as the top club in Latvia and greatly assist the team to progress in the Champions League.
The project will now be submitted for zoning and planning approval and KSS looks forward to taking it into detailed design and construction.
KSS is a leading architecture and design practice specialising in major sports venues and training facilities, educational projects and residential developments, with current training facility projects underway for Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Liverpool Football Club.
