Bury Lease Manchester City’s Facilities

League Two side Bury have reached an
agreement to lease Manchester City’s former
training ground in Carrington from 1 March.
.
The 22-acre site has been acquired on a five-year
deal.
.
The Premier League champions have moved into a
new £200m training complex in the city centre at the
Etihad Campus.
.
“The facility at Carrington is out of this world and it
was an opportunity that we simply could not turn
down,” said Bury chairman Stewart Day.
.
“We are thrilled to have reached this agreement
particularly given the keen interest in a number of
parties in leasing the site.
.
“Being able to have a Premier League-standard
training facility as our base is a signal of our very real intent to provide our staff and players of all ages with the optimum facilities to support their development and training.”
.
Bury, who currently sit in the final play-off place in
League Two, had been training at Lower Gigg, where
there was only one pitch.
