Multi-sports and 5-aside football have a new arena at Mid-Ulster. Rubb Buildings Ltd helped Mid-Ulster sporting community score a new indoor multi sports facilityin Cookstown, Northern Ireland.
The Mid Ulster Sports Arena (MUSA) is a state-of-the-art outdoor sports facility owned by Cookstown District Council, designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of different sports. Located just one mile from Cookstown on the Tullywigan Road, MUSA has the most advanced synthetic turf surface in Northern Ireland, and is both FIFA and UEFA approved.
Rubb UK worked with main contractor Newtownstewart Construction Ltd to design, manufacture and construct an indoor multi sports hall for MUSA measuring 25m wide by 95m long with 5m sidewalls and an apex height of 9.2m. The sports hall divides into two 5-aside pitches and one multi sports area with netting and removable rebound boards.
The multi sports structure includes Rubb’s traditional galvanized internal steel frame. The walls from the ground up feature 3m high steel cladding. A PVDF coated fabric tension membrane completes the blue upper walls and white roof. Rubb added the MUSA logo to the front gable end of the structure. Two 3m x 3m roller shutter doors in the front and rear gables of the building provide access to the sports facility along with eight personnel access doors.
The new sports facility complements MUSA’s existing five sand mattress grass pitches, an endurance area incorporating a multi-use games area suitable for a wide range of sports, a strength and conditioning room and a sports pavilion with eight team changing rooms, a 1400m trim trail, administration offices, committee room and catering facilities.
