Wycombe Wanderers have announced that they are to move their training facilities to Harlington in West London, the former home of Chelsea.

Chairboys have been exploring options to move away from Marlow Road over recent years, most notably in controversial talks to purchase Reading's Bearwood Park in March.

Falling through under the ownership of the Couhig family, new owner Mikhail Lomtadze highlighted new training facilities as a priority when confirming his purchase.

Aiming to move to Harlington as soon as possible, the Imperial College London owned site boats '18 full-size grass pitches and a floodlit FIFA-certified 3G astro, as well as a gymnasium, canteen, changing rooms, office and classroom space, meeting and video analysis rooms and a media studio.'

Chelsea, QPR and Sutton United have all used Harlington in the past, with the R's moving to a new purpose-built facility in 2022.

Dan Rice, the club’s new Chief Football Officer and Interim Chairman of the Board of Directors commented: “Our vision for the sustainable growth and success of the club are underpinned by the need for Wycombe Wanderers to have access to first-class training facilities and we are delighted to have secured our deal with Imperial College London to achieve our goal.

“Harlington is an excellent venue for us to develop our plans for establishing our first team at a higher level, and for creating an academy at the highest possible standard. We have undergone a thorough process to identify and secure the right facility for us and Harlington - with convenient transport links and located close to both Wycombe and London - suits our requirements.
