Charlton confirm new state-of-the-art pitch to be installed at The Valley ahead of 2024-25 season

Charlton Athletic have confirmed that a new state-of-the-art pitch will be installed at The Valley ahead of the 2024/25 season.

The hybrid-stitched Desso pitch will have a much greater durability, meaning it will be in better condition throughout the campaign.

As part of the investment, all women’s first-team league fixtures will be played at The Valley from the 2024-25 season.

The pitch is being paid for by a six-figure investment from the club’s ownership group and a £750,000 grant from the Premier League Stadium Fund, which awards capital grants to clubs to support improvement of their stadium facilities for players, supporters and officials.

Work begins on the pitch in May to ensure everything is in place for the men’s first team’s final pre-season friendly on Saturday, August 3rd.

Charlton Managing Director James Rodwell said: “We’re delighted that our men’s and women’s first teams will be playing on a new state-of-the-art pitch at The Valley for the 2024-25 season.

“Our vision for Charlton is for the club to become the most cohesive and sustainable community-driven club in the UK competing at an elite level. For us to reach that level, we need to continue to drive standards on and off the pitch. 

“This investment brings our playing surface at The Valley to that elite level. We’re grateful to the club ownership for supporting the vision financially and for the investment from the Premier League Stadium Fund.”

Louise McGing, General Manager of the Women’s team, added: “This is a game-changing moment in the history of Charlton Athletic Women. The Valley is a fantastic stadium and for us to be playing every league match here from next season gives us the perfect platform to continue to grow.”
