Kilmarnock plans to return to a grass pitch revealed

The Ayrshire club last played their home matches on grass in 2014 before implementing an artificial surface. The pitch was updated to a higher spec of astroturf in 2019.

Billy Bowie, the club’s majority shareholder, hopes that Killie can revert to a grass pitch by the start of the 2025/26 season, BBC states.

That will come as construction on the club’s new training centre, Bowie Park, is scheduled to begin next Spring. It is hoped works will be completed on the site between the town and Crookedholm by the end of 2024.

The facility will be the club’s first dedicated training centre, with the first team, academy and women’s team all currently training at Rugby Park. 

Bowie Park will become a permanent home for Kilmarnock Women and the club’s academy teams. It will have two full-size pitches, a training complex and a 250-seater stand.
