Edinburgh Wins Bid For Scotland's Sprawling $47.5M Multi-Sport Performance Center
Published September 13, 2013
'THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN': The Scotland DAILY RECORD reported Scottish FA CEO Stewart Regan believes the project "will rival anything the English have built at St George's Park." The English FA built its national performance center at Burton at a cost of more than £100M ($158M), but Regan "hopes Scotland's version will prove to be just as good at a fraction of the cost." Regan said, "This is the jewel in the crown for Scotland's performance strategy." Regan is "most hopeful that it will have a tangible effect on the prospects of the nation's football team." Regan: "It will be a one-stop shop to provide all our needs prior to a major match, both home and away" (DAILY RECORD, 9/12).
'TREMENDOUS NEWS': STV reported Heriot-Watt University Professor Steve Chapman said that the announcement was "tremendous news." Chapman: "Our real reward, however, isn't winning the bid, but will come when the center is up and running and we can see it making a real difference to Scotland's sporting future" (STV, 9/12).
