Work starts on new pitches at Withdean Sports Complex Brighton News

Funded with section 106 developer contributions, the pitches at Withdean Sports Complex in Brighton are being built on an area near the athletics track, formerly used as an overspill car park.

Brighton and Hove City Council said the new facility, complete with floodlighting for year-round use, will help to meet demand across the city for all weather football pitches, identified in the city’s Local Football Facility Plan.

The council hopes it will also build on the legacy of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament, which saw matches played at the Amex Stadium, and aims to provide more opportunities for women and girls to participate in football.

Councillor Alan Robins, chairman of the culture, heritage, sport, tourism and economic committee, said: “This new football facility at Withdean will provide so many opportunities for training and recreational play, not just for our local football clubs, but for schools and community groups in the surrounding area.

“It’s great to see Withdean developing as a major sporting hub, as proposed in our Sports Facilities Investment Plan, and enhancing our growing reputation as a major sporting city.”
