New Stadium by 2008

New Stadium by 2008

Will Pompey have a stadium by 2008?

That is the new poll on Vital Pompey and the question on many fans lips is about the stadium. Fratton Park is the oldest stadium in the Premiership and has some of the worst facilities you`d find across the country.

It is our home though and fans will have many great memories of Fratton Park. It was the first ever Stadium to have a floodlight league match!

Milan had plans in-place to rotate the pitch and build a new stadium in its place. The away stand would however be restricted as to its height because of houses behind.

Pompey fans have been expecting a stadium for a long time and the arrival of Sacha Gaydamak has resulted in new hope. Peter Storrie has confirmed that Sacha has plans for the Stadium that "we couldn`t imagine." This will probably result in moving away from Fratton to a new location…

But will we have a stadium by 2008? Vote and have your say

if the council is absolutely cooperative i dont think so but just maybe. If not then..not a bl00dy chance, 1st of all there's planning consent, once assumed planning permission, then you have your wayleave agreements. then you have your local area consultations for your nimby's. Then its the highways department, then the utilities, then fire safety, district surveyor and then transport consultations and then back to planning. In between design goes to stage E, then tendering & selection then contract pre start notice period, then assuming they want a retail park, there is the finding other buyers to capitilise the project (remember sacha has said long term the stadium must be self financing and the usual outlet suspects have all just moved into pompey village). In fact not chance

You have that spot on russelm, It'll take until 2008 to decide where they might build the new stadium.

I bet BARR who got the contract to build Fratton Park are really****ed off. I remember Storrie saying on the radio that it wouldn't be long to build the ground as all the steel had already been cut to size and it was just a case of errecting it in place and building it up. Maybe the pikies stole the steel which is why we have no new ground LOL
