Scotland's new multi-million pound Regional Performance Centre for Sport has opened in Dundee.

The £32m multi-sport facility houses a full-size indoor artificial pitch and an outdoor 3G pitch designed to meet FIFA and World Rugby standards for match play and training.

In the main building there is an eight-court multi-sports hall, a high-tech sport science suite, health club and meeting spaces.

Located at Dundee's Caird Park, the centre will also cater for athletics, with an indoor athletics centre housing an 80m running straight. Outdoor facilities include an athletics, a throws cage developed to IAAF standards and a covered spectator area.

For cycling, there is an outdoor velodrome capable of hosting competitions – even at night, thanks to floodlighting.

Investment came from Dundee City Council and the National Lottery through sportscotland, and the centre will be operated by Leisure and Culture Dundee.

The centre will be open to everyone at every level – from local schools and clubs to the biggest names in Scottish sport.

It is also home to sportscotland’s Tayside and Fife sporting partnership and a specialist team of sportscotland institute of sport staff providing bespoke services to athletes training for some of the world’s top sporting events including the Olympics.

A number of institutions and bodies were part of the team working on the project, including football clubs Dundee FC and Dundee United FC.

Others involved are the University of Dundee, Abertay University, Dundee & Angus College and NHS Tayside.
