Facilities include a modern function suite, which can seat up to 140 people, available for celebrations, VIP events, dinners and conferences.

The stadium also has a pavilion building which is used to hold networking events, seminars, exhibitions and business presentations.

A fully-equipped dance studio is also located in the main building which is available to local groups such as the Quay School of Dance. Overlooking the pitch is an area used for VIP events.

Club director Keith Morris said: “AFC Sudbury is now much more than a football club.

“We have a very big community ethos and recognise our important role within the community.

“Our aim is to make the venue a community hub available to the public, organisations and the business sector.

“We have fantastic facilities and, to encourage greater use, we have launched a new website to showcase what is available.” He added: “All funds generated via our hire facilities go directly to supporting the football club and its participation in youth and community projects.”
