Spire Healthcare have become the new official healthcare partner of the Football Association's new National Football Centre.
The opening of the centre at Burton upon Trent in about a years time corresponds with Spire Healthcare’s arrival at St. George’s Park.
Spire will be operating the facilities under its new Perform brand. At its core, Perform at St. George’s Park will provide a sports medicine, treatment and performance centre, with an emphasis on sports science and human performance. The partnership will create the first totally integrated sports medicine centre, supported by an advanced research programme.
David Sheepshanks, Chairman of St. George’s Park, commented
“The appointment of Spire Healthcare is a seminal moment in the development of St. George’s Park. We have secured a medical partner who shares our aim of creating a comprehensive National Sports Medicine facility that can serve the needs not only of football but the wider sporting community."
Neil McCullough, Business Development Director at Spire, added
“We’re incredibly proud to work alongside The Football Association and be partners at St. George’s Park. The Perform at St. George’s Park facility will provide world-class treatment, research and education - this is a very exciting time for sports science and human performance medicine in the UK.”
