Chairman Jeff Mostyn, owner Maxim Demin as well as the other directors have openly admitted that there is a ‘desperate need’ to facilitate large attendances at the venue after their promotion to the Championship to take advantage of record demand for season-tickets.
The club have said that even though new stadium options have been explored, the club has chosen to try and erect a new permanent stand as their preferred option.
Speaking the Daily Echo Mostyn went on record to say: “As everybody knows, there is a desperate need for us to look at increasing the capacity at some stage. With 11,700 – including segregation – we probably have the smallest stadium in the Championship. We have started a feasibility study and my fellow director John O’Neill has been working on it. One of the options is that we look to put a permanent stand where the temporary stand at the south end of the ground is now.”
He added “I am not suggesting that it is going to happen this season and we deliberately took the stance last season of trying to see where we were going to finish. There would be no point building a permanent stand if, for whatever reason, we weren’t as successful as we had been. It is one possibility.”
