By Jonathon Brown and Mark Robinson-JonesNewcastle on Sunday was one of those rare days when it was possible to get to the stadium with a couple of hours notice and not leave without an hour’s delay.
But that didn’t mean the construction of the world’s biggest football stadium was as exciting as the first time you entered the ground.
When Newcastle United’s stadium opened in March it was supposed to be a one-off occasion, but it quickly became a fixture on every sports weekend in the country.
As we now know, the construction will take up to 10 years to complete and the first game is due to take place on Saturday, September 26.
There is, however, a second event scheduled for the weekend of the 28th – the completion of the club’s first training ground.
The training ground will become the new home of Newcastle United, the club confirmed on Friday.
It will be the first training facility built for the club since its establishment in 1995.
“It will bring the club closer to the fans, with facilities and facilities to train and learn together with our academy and development programme,” said chief executive Lee Charnley.
It was hoped the new training ground would provide the club with a major boost to the club, which has struggled in recent years with injuries and a lack of playing time.
It is understood that the club is in discussions with a number of interested parties but that the final decision on the location of the training ground has not yet been made.
In order to prepare for the new season, Newcastle United will play some of its home games away from the ground in an attempt to give the fans a better understanding of how the club has been running for many years.
There has been speculation in the past that the stadium could become the home of a new Premier League club.”
The club is committed to providing a fantastic experience to our supporters, and to all of our supporters who love football, who are in the city, and who come to the ground,” said Charningsley.

However, with the league moving to London next season, it is likely that the Newcastle United training ground may be the next venue in line for redevelopment.
But the club will need to find another way to get fans into the stadium, and there will be no guarantee that it will be built.”
We’ve been a big supporter of the stadium and the ground and we want that support to continue.”
