The Field Hockey Complex enjoys an exceptional geographical location on the edge of the Deûle, on the outskirts of the Citadel: a veritable green lung within Lille. Located less than 3 km from the city centre, the complex is close to both major roads and hospitals; in addition, hotels can be found within 10 minutes of the sports centre. Our facilities consist of several spaces:
- 1 lit and approved official artificial-turf field (87.5 x 54.5 metres);
- 1 lit and approved official artificial-turf field (municipal property);
- 1 car park adjacent to the complex;
- 4 changing rooms (+1 referee changing room), 3 communal showers and 3 toilets;
- 1 weights room;
- A grandstand may be assembled on the main pitch (capacity ranging from 380 to 1,500 seats);
- 1 8-metre video tower (7 m platform) with an area of 2 x 4 m;
This hockey-practice site allows athletes to train in a green and unspoilt setting, while still located very close to the city centre.
Offering real added value, this complex benefits from an on-site catering area, with its “le push” restaurant, which can accommodate more than 70 people.
A renovation project is to be initiated throughout the complex and will allow for further improvements to our welcoming conditions and the practice of hockey on site, from 2023 onwards. The renovation project will provide:
- An extension of the changing rooms with 2 new communal changing rooms and 1 referee changing room;
- A renovation of the club house and its kitchens;
- A renovation of the weights room;
The creation of a medical area (first aid, physiotherapy area, etc.)
This complex is the training site of the Lille Métropole Hockey Club, competing at a European level. It hosts club competitions up to the French championships, as well as international sporting events.
The site regularly hosts the European and Men’s and Women’s National Cups (Euro Hockey league 2008 and 2013, as well as the World Cup qualifying matches in 2009).
The France team itself has already visited us here in Lille, most notably in 2018 for their clash against the United States team, and again in 2019 against Belgium. The French team found this complex to be a site that meets the expectations of high-level practice, with a welcoming club and recognised organisational capacities.
The site is well suited to hosting events of international influence.
