Following its launch at the Soccerex African Forum, plans for The Hoy Park Sports Development Centre, a state of the art complex due to be built in Durban, South Africa, will be presented to the international football community as part of this year’s Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro.
The centre will include on site accommodation, numerous grass and artificial pitches and the latest in medical facilities making it an ideal location to develop the Africa’s football talent but also for international teams of all sports to use as a centre for pre-season or warm weather training.
The project is being run by the KwaZulu-Natal Province, the City of Durban and IEC in Sports International Events & Communications AB and has the backing of the South African Football Association (SAFA).
The presentation will form part of a dedicated programme of performance industry related content at this year’s Convention and, at this early stage, will provide an fantastic opportunity for suppliers from across the football spectrum, to engage with the key decision makers from the project as well learn about the multiple commercial opportunities the centre offers.
Soccerex CEO, Duncan Revie, commented:
“I am delighted that our partners KZN and the team from IEC have agreed to come and present the plans for Hoy Park in Rio. Projects of this scale don’t come about every day and it is important that the world of football is aware of such developments. Having seen its launch at the African Forum, I can safely say it will have a massive impact on football in South Africa and will offer international teams a first class training facility.”
