The National Sports Campus -
Winner of Best Sports Facility in Ireland
The National Sports Campus is delighted to have won the “Best Sports Facility” category at last week’s inaugural Irish Sports Industry Awards. This new awards programme has been established by the Federation of Irish Sport – the umbrella body of National Governing Bodies of Sport in Ireland – and attracted entries from all over Ireland.
This prestigious award is a major recognition of the vision, commitment and operational excellence which the Campus aims to achieve in providing all of its patrons with excellent, world-class facilities.
David Conway, Director, National Sports Campus, said “We are delighted to win this award against some very tough competition. Not only is this a reward for the investment we continue to make in providing a first class facility to the wider Irish sporting family and the general public, but it is testament to the work that our staff put in year on year, and is a great source of pride for all involved in the Campus”.
John Treacy, CEO of Sport Ireland congratulated the Campus on the award and added that he looks forward to the completion of the National Sports Campus in the coming years to truly make it the heart of Irish Sport.
The National Sports Campus currently comprises: the National Aquatic Centre (swimming, diving & ToneZone gym); National Horse Sport Arena (show jumping & dressage); National Diving Training Centre (diving, gymnastics & trampolining); NSC Multisport Pitches (hockey, Gaelic games, soccer, rugby, and American football amongst others with both synthetic and turf pitches available); National Pentathlon Training Centre (shooting & fencing).
In addition, the Campus is home to 20 Irish NGBs at Irish Sport HQ, the headquarters of the FAI and the Irish Institute of Sport. Work is continuing on the development of the National Indoor Arena, with other facilities (including a National Cross-Country Track) also under development.
