Going national

Indoor football complex Soccer City, which opened at Mayfield Industrial Estate last November, is planning to open more centres across the country.

Facility manager Craig Meikle said: “We have already earmarked another two or three sites for expansion. We have a goal to become the biggest supplier for indoor football in Scotland.”

The complex benefited from the recent bad weather with youth and amateur football teams snapping up their facilities to avoid the elements. It was so busy during the height of the cold snap that they had to turn people away.
