USW Sport students are now learning on the University’s new full-sized indoor 3G pitch at the USW Sport Park - the only one in Wales.

This facility provides students with the very best environment in which to learn, grow and become professional coaches and analysts.

Their classroom is on this pitch - a FIFA 2-star pitch which meets all the requirements of the B license for football coaching which is embedded in to its football courses.

The pitch also conforms to World Rugby 22 standard with a shock pad underneath, meaning it will play better, last longer and provide a safer playing environment for rugby students.
