Major Developments by AFL Architects, alphabetical:

David Beckham Football Centre, Natal, Brazil
2008-
This is the third football centre for the former England player following his success with similar branded academies in Greenwich, south-east London, and Los Angeles, California, USA. It is located in the coastal resort of Natal.

This English Architect Practice missed out on designing Liverpool’s new Anfield stadium just before Christmas 2007/08. The sports facility aimed at local children will be ‘substantially larger’ than the existing London centre.

Early plans for the complex, in the north-eastern corner of the South American country, include indoor pitches, a 10,000-seat stadium and a 400-bedroom hotel.

Thomond Park
The design proposal here was to provide a large increase from the existing 11,091 capacity stadium. A study examined three alternative sites. A decision was then taken to retain the rugby stadium in its existing city centre location. While city centre stadiums present challenges in relation to event management these issues are outweighed by the vibrancy and atmosphere generated in the city on the day of a big match.
