A new conference facility is set to be built at the FA's National Football Centre (NFC) in Burton-upon-Trent.

The FA has begun a public consultation on the plans to build a 150-bedroom four-star hotel, an 80-bedroom three-star hotel and conference and banqueting venues, including a 90-seat lecture theatre.

In addition, there will be state-of-the-art sporting facilities, including 12 full-size football pitches, a flexible indoor sports hall, a cutting-edge gym and hydrotherapy suite plus sports medicine and sports science facilities.

The project is a collaborative venture between the FA and sponsors Umbro, with the first step being to rename the NFC, changing it to St George's Park.
