Boreham Wood Football Club are absolutely delighted to announce to supporters that our amazing new Desso Pitch and associated summer facility builds will all be completed by mid July.
Chairman Danny Hunter commented. “With everything going to plan, I can announce that we will play just two home pre-season games this summer and the two teams that we’ve chosen, are our friends at Luton Town and our amazing pitch collaborators Arsenal Football Club.
Hunter explained “These exciting summer facility builds, include a new main pitch irrigation system, a new main pitch drainage system, a new full size 2star UEFA approved training pitch, that sits alongside the car park and comes complete with a new concourse walkway and an interior/exterior fencing system set within the club grounds.
“We’re also having a new 500 lux LED floodlight system installed, a new set of Premiership standard dugouts constructed and the prep work is now well underway. As such we are confident and expect to have a completed facility handed to us as of the 15th July..
“Luton Town have agreed to bring their full first team squad to play us on Saturday, 22nd July. They will then be followed by a strong Arsenal XI, who will officially open the new million pound DESSO pitch and our new floodlight system on the evening of Thursday, 27th July. Arsenal have been incredibly supportive and they will arrive at Meadow Park, after returning from their pre-season trip to Australia and China, before they play in the Emirates Cup that begins the weekend of 29th July”..
Wood’s Chairman finished by saying “Boreham Wood Football Club would like to thank both pro clubs for agreeing to come to Meadow Park. We also wish Luton Town, good luck in their league two play offs and wishing Arsenal Football Club good luck in their quest for both a top four Premiership finish and of course FA Cup glory once again.
