Press Release: University buys Ford Meadow football ground

16 May 2013

The University of Buckingham has acquired Ford Meadow, until 2011 the ground of Buckingham Town Football Club, thanks to the generosity of alumnus Matthew Proud.

The 3.58 acre site, which has become derelict and vandalised during the past two years, includes the football pitch, two stands, a clubhouse, changing rooms and a large, hard area. The University intends to restore the football pitch and to provide new courts for sports such as basketball on the higher ground next to the clubhouse.

The University has always made its facilities available to the people of Buckingham, and it will explore ways in which the new sports field, which it will name after Matthew Proud, might be used more widely.
