A new Community Arena sports facility is to open at Oxford City Football Club (OCFC) later this month, which has been created with the help of Sport England funding.

The new complex has been built at Marsh Lane in Marston and will include a 3G full-size synthetic football pitch; six floodlit netball courts; and a pavilion with six dressing rooms.

OCFC and Oxfordshire Netball have also provided funding to the £2.1m development, as well as England Netball, the Football Foundation, Oxford City Council; and Oxford Sports Council.

Facilitas SMC has acted as main site developer on the scheme, while AP Thompson was responsible for the artificial pitch and netball court development works. Ideal Flooring and Woodstock Roofing also worked on the scheme.

OCFC voluntary managing director Colin Taylor said: “The Community Arena’s purpose is to provide top quality affordable sporting facilities for the local community.”
