Blades stadium proposals go before planning councillors

Proposals submitted by Sheffield United FC (the Blades) to further develop its Bramall Lane stadium in Sheffield, UK, are being considered by the city planning board today (2 November). The Blades’ plans to extend its South Stand, for which planning officers are recommending approval, follow in the wake of the club’s plans to develop the Kop stand which, alone, will increase ground capacity by about 5,000.

The South Stand development would see an additional tier of seating, increasing overall capacity to approximately 44,000. Purpose-built exhibition and conference facilities would also be built within the stand, along with new facilities for supporters, including corporate facilities, and additional commercial and banqueting facilities.

“This is the latest stage in our long-term strategy to drive our off-the-field income to deliver a sustainable business which can support further investment in the first team squad,” said Jason Rockett, executive director of the club. “These proposals have the added benefit of bringing us in line with FIFA requirements at a time when we are proudly supporting Sheffield’s bid to be host city in England’s application to stage the 2018 World Cup.”

Earlier this year Sheffield United FC received the go-ahead from Sheffield City Council for the redevelopment of the Kop stand, which will include additional seating, the removal of columns, a new concourse, new executive boxes, community and educational facilities, as well as improved services for disabled supporters to be built in the Evolution Corner Stand. The club is also looking to build a second business enterprise centre between the Kop and the South Stand.
