    Re-decorate the sports facilities to celebrate our success.


      My idea is for the sports facilities; Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and UCLan sports arena to display and celebrate the universities sporting success and excellence. There is very little of our own achievements displayed in our sporting facilities which shows a lack of appreciation and lack of support. 


      Upon viewing other universities’ sports facilities for different reasons, it is highlighted that we are lacking significantly in this sector of support for our own teams. Pictures, flags, trophies and team kits are displayed across other universities’ sports facilities to advertise how well their sports teams do and what they achieve on a yearly basis. 


      Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre is filled with items regarding Sir Tom Finney that most students would agree are irrelevant to us. The current state of the sports doesn’t feel like it is our facilitiy as students, whereas after visiting other universities it has become apparent that their university teams are put first and their achievements celebrated. American Colleigic sports are an extreme example of this and how it can create an atmosphere to breed excellence.


      In my opinon you should walk into the sports facilities of the university and be blown away by their own sports teams, it should make you feel empowered and motivated. STFSC and UClan Sports Arena are plain and don't en-cumpus our sports culture at all. We all want to get the most we can out of sport and it starts with our own facilties.
