Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pledged his support for plans to build a £70m world class football facility in Northwich, cheshire.

Driven by Cheshire Football Association, the proposals – called Vision 2020 – include a new 3,000-capacity stadium, two outdoor 3G pitches, one indoor 3G pitch, a medical facility, an outdoor activity centre, a hotel and spa.

Set to be located at the former Knights Grange Golf Club in Winsford, the "football village" – designed by architects Space & Place – is also set to become a leading centre for the provision of women and girls football.

Speaking in parliament, answering a question from Eddisbury MP Edward Timpson – who has been championing the development – PM Johnson said: "This is a very exciting project and I welcome Cheshire FA's commitment to providing a new world class facility for women's and girl's football and I look forward to the proposed opening of the centre in Winsford."

Dave Edmunds, chair of Cheshire FA, said: "This proposal will see Cheshire at the forefront of County FA Football Development at every level of the game.

"Our aim is to provide a fantastic facility that will significantly increase opportunities and experiences for all participants within the game, be they individuals or Clubs.

"At a time when the Football Association is targeting the doubling of participation in the women’s game, this will also give Cheshire and our partners the chance to lead the way, and create a lasting legacy not only for women’s and girl’s football, but the whole game throughout the County of Cheshire."

According to Louise Gear, head of women’s football participation at The Football Association, the project will transform the women's game in the region.

“This is an innovative proposal and great news for aspiring female footballers across Cheshire," Gear said.

"Excellent facilities mean more opportunities, better players, and more enjoyment. Centres like this can only aid our aspiration of doubling participation in the women’s game by 2020”.
