The future looks bright for football in Warwick


share close

On Saturday, there were two firsts for the Racing Club Warwick Football Club as they hosted Whitchurch Alport for their first Midland Football League fixture in two years: the first team’s first home league game on the newly completed 3G pitch. 


The new all-weather playing surface was installed earlier this year as part of a project managed and funded by Warwick District Council, Racing Club Warwick and the Football Foundation with additional support from the King Henry VIII Charitable Trust and Warwick Town Council. 


Councillor Liam Bartlett, the Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Tourism and Leisure, commented: “Having missed out on the entire 2020/21 season, it’s not only great to see Racing Club Warwick’s first team back in action, but also to watch them playing their home matches on their wonderful new pitch. “


The Chairman of Racing Club Warwick, Gary Vella, added:


“The new 3G pitch is already proving to be a huge asset for our local community and is in constant use every day of the week. We are not only hosting all our training and games. Still, we have been able to expand our academy and offer facilities to other junior sides in the area along with opportunities for women’s, girls’, and disability football.”


Further information on Racing Club Warwick teams, training opportunities and fixtures can be found on their website.
