Monday morning saw Feyenoord sign an agreement with construction company Berghege on the construction of the new training complex for the first-team squad. The first training session at the complex, which is to be built on a site that formerly belonged to amateur club VV Hillesluis, is scheduled for the start of the 2018-2019 season.
The agreement was signed in the Boardroom at De Kuip by general director Eric Gudde, technical director Martin van Geel and Henk Berghege, director/owner of Berghege.
For Gudde the construction of the new training complex is an important step in the club’s ambitions to establish a top sports environment. ‘A long-cherished wish of ours is being realised,’ said the general director. ‘Berghege came best out of the contract process; we are confident that they will put our final design for the complex into practice wonderfully well. The facilities are expected to be an exceptionally attractive place for players to train.’
