In response to recent comments made about the condition of the grass pitch used by the Scotland men’s football team, Ross Campbell, Executive Director at Oriam said:

“The world-class facilities provided by Oriam are suitable for elite-level athletes and we are proud to host our professional clubs and teams who choose to train with us.  Our facilities adhere to the highest health and safety standards and the welfare of everyone at Oriam is of paramount importance.

“We are privileged to be at the heart of Scotland’s sporting ambitions and remain dedicated to nurturing the next generation of sports stars while benefitting our local community.

“The recent criticism of one of our grass pitches is disappointing and does not reflect the independent assessment of the pitch. Further, our dedicated team work incredibly hard to maintain the best possible training environment.

“The Scottish FA is a valued partner and we are delighted to have played our part in their recent qualification successes. We look forward to welcoming the men’s and women’s national teams back to Oriam in the future.”
