The Isobel Bowler Sports Ground is being constructed for Sheffield City Council and is part of the FA’s wider investment in grassroots football. It is being built on the site of the old Westfield School and Sports Centre.
Robertson Yorkshire & East Midlands will be building the two-storey pavilion. It will include changing facilities; a gym and fitness studio on the first floor; and a club room, coaching room and changing facilities on the ground floor. There will also be a 200-space car park, along with new access from Moss Way.
The Isobel Bowler Sports Ground is the third “Parklife” football facility to be created in Sheffield, along with sites at Sheffield Graves and Thorncliffe.
The overall project cost of the £6m sports ground is being met through a mix of funding from Sheffield City Council, the Football Association, the Football Foundation and Sport England. The centre will be operated by Pulse Fitness, which also manages the football hubs at Graves and Thorncliffe.
