Zenit’s training ground was open in 1963, and ownership of the training ground was transferred to the club in 1994. The ground was almost completely reconstructed in 2002.
Nowadays, the training ground contains five training pitches with underground heating, irrigation and artificial lighting, a sports building with locker rooms and a gym, a medical rehabilitation centre, a press centre, the main building with administrative facilities and its own food complex.
Zenit’s first team holds up to 200 training sessions a year at the training ground in Udelny Park. Regardless of the weather, 4 pitches with natural lawns are always available for athletes.
The youth team and Zenit-2 are also based in Udelny Park. At their disposal is a football field with the high-quality artificial lawn that matches the level of "FIFA 2 stars", as well as a complex of locker rooms and utility spaces.
Since 2008, reconstruction and development of new buildings of the training centre have been carried out at the sports base. The development strategy involves the implementation of the following projects:
- reconstruction of the utility unit for the installation of a boiler room with administerial premises;
- reconstruction of the checkpoint with the front office of the training centre and the press zone;
- construction of a centre for restorative medicine, rehabilitation and diagnostics, including the “Footbonaut” simulator;
- reconstruction of the main building.
At the base in the Udelny Park, Zenit team regularly holds training sessions open to the press.
