"The new development centre in Newport is one of the most important advances in the history of Welsh football" - Chris Coleman

The key aim of the centre is to improve the standard of football at all levels across Wales. It will host a broad range of training courses including UEFA Licence courses. This will further enhance coaching standards, so vital to the development and success of football in Wales.

“The new development centre in Newport is one of the most important advances in the history of Welsh football. The best footballing countries such as France and Spain have their own centres for development and have enjoyed huge international success. As a country we have seen some great players emerge from Wales and now we have the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen. With this first class facility we will see more top quality players come through the system. We had nothing like this in my day so this is a massive boost.” Chris Coleman, National Team Manager.

“Dragon Park will provide a top quality base from where we can deliver our coach education and player development programmes. Such facilities are important to attain the level of training and technical work which we aspire to achieve to support our ultimate aim of producing better players and better coaches for the future.” - Osian Roberts, Technical Director.
