Carlos Mouriño and Nidia Arévalo check progress of RC Celta’s sports city on location

The president of RC Celta, Carlos Mouriño, and the mayor of Mos, Nidia Arévalo, visited this morning the works of the new sports city of the sky-blue club, a crucial project for the future of the entity and the development of one of its basic foundations, its youth academy.

The parish of Pereiras is the site of this first phase of the construction of the sports city which, on the basis of the license obtained, consists of the execution of the fields destined to professional football and the necessary facilities for its optimal operation.

Work is currently being carried out on earth moving, levelling and the necessary preparation to erect the perimeter walls that will support the platforms where the playing fields will be located. Immediately, work will begin on improving the existing water collection on the land.

The construction site visit was also attended by representatives of the Mos council and the local water and forest communities.

The project for the Celta sports city, designed by Irisarri and Piñera , fulfils the expectations of RC Celta to develop a sports city that is as environmentally friendly as possible and has a high capacity to successfully meet the needs of both the academy players and the first team.

The innovative sports city of RC Celta in Mos will have, among other facilities, eight fields of play (four natural and four artificial), a technification zone, a beach area for rehabilitation and other activities, a stadium with a minimum spectator capacity of 4,000, paddle and tennis courts, a swimming pool, a residence, a cafeteria-restaurant, a club shop, a sports university, a multipurpose sports pavilion and gyms.
