Manchester City Council – Belle Vue Sports Village (Value: £12.5m)

The new Sports Village consisted of a new National Speedway stadium and National Speedway Academy with a target cat A GIFA of 2,000m2; a new 3G (all-weather) pitch which can accommodate a wider range of sports other than just hockey; a new grass pitch for Rugby League; a new National Basketball Centre; and improvements and extension to the existing fitness and leisure facilities.

The National Speedway Stadium brought international standard facilities to the North West with a new grandstand that features a first floor hospitality area with function rooms, bar areas and VIP Suites.

The National Basketball Performance Centre will soon be home to both local community basketball leagues and clubs and national performance teams and includes 3 courts with timber sprung flooring and perimeter bleacher seating which provides a 2,000 seat capacity for the centre court on game days.
