Newcastle Utd unveil high tech training facility

Newcastle United have released new images of their upgraded training facility that has been re-developed to help the club compete at the highest level in the Premier League and Champions League next season.

Eddie Howe guided the Magpies back to Europe’s top competition and a fourth-placed finish in the English top-flight last season along with making it to the Carabao Cup final.

The club published footage of their state-of-the-art Benson training facility on Tuesday that has been funded by Newcastle’s wealthy Saudi Arabian owners.

The upgrade was deemed as a priority when Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund secured ownership from previous owner Mike Ashley for £300million in 2021.

The new-look establishment is a transformation on the depleted facilities that players and staff became used to during Ashley’s reign in charge of the Tyneside outfit.

Upon revealing their development, the club explained some of the work that had been carried out and the new features that would be used to aid first-team players in their recovery.

A statement read: ‘Over the last few months, Newcastle United’s Benton training ground has been undergoing an extensive renovation, with the addition of hydrotherapy and plunge pools, improved changing rooms, an updated presentation room, a modern players’ lounge and a new, bigger dining area.

An unveiling video presented by former Newcastle star Shola Ameobi guides viewers through the entirety of the multi-million-pound complex.

The whistle-stop tour begins with Ameobi progressing through reception to the inner depths of the unfinished facility by using facial recognition software that only allows approved personnel to gain access.
