3G Sports Pitch

The installation of a new third generation artificial pitch to the south of the two existing Astroturf pitches was completed in June 2014. The pitch is certified to FIFA and IRB standards, allowing competitive matches to be played.

Kim Montgomery, Head of Sport said "the delivery of this facility will have considerable impact on our sports teams, recreational players and the local community. It will enable rugby and football matches to be played in all weathers and training to take place regardless of grass pitch conditions. This is further testimony to the importance that Lancaster University places upon sport and the wellbeing of its population."

Emily Pollitt, Student Union Vice President for Activities at the time said "I'm so excited about the installation of the 3G pitch. It's going to be such a great addition to our current facilities. There will be some disruption during its construction but we ask that you bear with us during this time."
