High quality training & playing pitches.
Richmond International Academic & Soccer Academy offers a high-quality football programme and our academy has access to FIFA standard 3G and professional grass pitches.
RIASA are fortunate to have access to training and playing facilities at both Leeds Beckett University, and Leeds University which offer all weather floodlit 3G rubber crumb pitches and high quality grass pitches.
The 3G pitch is IRB regulation 22 approved and uses a rubber crumb surface. Take the 3D Virtual Tour below and see the pitch facilities for yourself.
The 3G pitch at Sports Park Westwood which our academy uses is also a 3G rubber crumb pitch. This is also floodlit and meets FIFA quality and World 22 standard, offering a high-quality playing surface for our football programme.
Shaping the Future
Leeds Beckett University have recently invested in a new £45M high tech state of the art fitness centre which will be available for the first time at the start of next semester. This new development will offer modern, up-to-date, outstanding facilities which include: a hypoxic laboratory, a health and wellbeing studio, a covered rooftop 60m sprint track for performance training and analysis, a rooftop walking track and terrace, enhanced strength and conditioning spaces, and changing and recovery facilities.
