Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust are very excited to announce our plans to create a Sporting and Community Facility which our participants, supporters and the STFITC Trust family can be extremely proud of. Working in partnership with Swindon Borough Council and Swindon Harriers Athletics Club, we have the ambition to not only deliver a full size 3G playing pitch, but also build an inspirational Community Hub that will enable all our partners to further enhance their existing delivery, as well as being able to offer new sporting and social opportunities to the community of Swindon.

The location for this state of the art facility will be situated on the County Ground extension and the building will stand alongside the athletics facility, with balconies overlooking both the 3G pitch and athletics track.

We are passionate about creating a community facility that will inspire and engage thousands of participants, and to make all of Swindon proud.

We would like to invite you to our Public Consultation on Wednesday 15th March held in the Legends Lounge at the County Ground. You can drop in at anytime between 3.30pm 7.30pm to find out more about the project and give your feedback.

Sounds like good news for the future of children's football and maybe athletics in Swindon.

Assume the money from this will come from Grants.

Is the FITC separate from stfc ?

It's affiliated, FITC gets its funding from a wide range of sponsors. I doubt the club puts in much funding beyond use of facilities and stumping up the odd hospitality package, tickets that sort of thing.

FITC has done an excellent job over the years.... recent initiatives like the collaberation with the newish 6th form at Commonweal a good example.

This sounds like a much needed initiative, however the involvement of SBC may scupper it....
