Work well underway on new football hub

Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Bruce Tennent was on hand to help with the development of a new high class facility as the construction of a new £8m state-of-the art football hub progresses at Monks Brook playing fields, Eastleigh.

The Council has joined forces with the Football Association (FA) to develop an FA Parklife Football Hub Brook Playing Fields on Stoneham Lane. The new facility will provide replacement football pitches for those being lost as part of the North Stoneham housing and community development.

Thanks to significant grant funding from the Football Foundation, Sport England and the Premier League, together with funding from the Council, the new facility is set to become one of the biggest football hubs in the country, providing high quality facilities for local clubs and residents to enjoy.
