We’re delighted to partner with Newcastle United Foundation to deliver their state-of-the-art NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society.

Opening in 2022, NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society will be the new home of Newcastle United Foundation. We’re delighted to be investing in this state-of-the-art facility.


About the building

Newcastle United Foundation has been delivering successful, high impact community programmes in the North East for ten years.

But they’ve outgrown their current home, so we’re helping them build a new one.

It will be a state-of-the-art hub for sports, education and wellbeing, with football at the heart of both the building and its programme of activities.

NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society will be home to the Foundation, integrating seamlessly into a community space with digital learning suites and specialist classrooms, events and meeting spaces and sports facilities including a 4G rooftop pitch, just a short distance from St. James’ Park.

The community hub will support the Foundation’s ongoing outreach work, and will help launch the NU: Futures programme, supporting disadvantaged young people from across the North of Tyne area to engage with education, skills and careers activities.


Where is it located?

Just a goal-kick away from St James’ Park, NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society will be located on the former Murray House Recreational Centre site in the West End of Newcastle.

The new facility will provide access to extensive sports and fitness activities for the local community, as well as delivering wellbeing and education programmes for the wider region.

The new building will be fully accessible, welcoming people of all abilities from across the North East; from walking football for seniors, to accessible sports for people with disabilities.


When is it opening?

Due to open in 2022, December 2020 saw ground-breaking work begin at the former Murray House Recreation Centre in Newcastle’s West End.

NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society will replace the disused building, and will be a community hub championing excellence in education, employment, and physical and mental wellbeing for thousands of children, young people, adults and elderly residents across the North East.
