Milton Keynes Dons receive green light to install football pitches at the National Bowl

    Planning permission has been granted to MK Dons for the installation of first-team pitches at the National Bowl.

    First-team football pitches and training grids are set to be installed at an iconic Milton Keynes music venue.

    In a statement issued by MK Dons, the football club has announced it has received planning permission for the installation of two full-sized football pitches and training grids.

    The football club says: "MK Dons are delighted to confirm that planning permission has been granted for the installation of first-team pitches at the National Bowl.

    "While there is still some additional legal work to complete, this is great news for MK Dons and means we are on track to be on site by the end of 2023.

    "This is the first phase of the Club’s relocation of the training ground to the National Bowl, which will see us install two full-sized grass football pitches and four training grids on the plateau of the Bowl."

    The club hopes the new ground will be in operation by the end of this year.

    Back in August, it was announced that music was coming back to The National Bowl in Milton Keynes, after Muse announced their global tour was making its way to the city this summer.

    It will be the first concert that has taken place at the iconic venue in 7 years.

    The grounds will be used by Milton Keynes Cycling Association, the club has previously said.
