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 locationů

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

No chance at the current rate and more importantly where rather than when?

Give the man a chance, he has only been here 5 mins!! 1st priority was staying in the prem, he did that by splashing the cash in Jan, 2nd we have the best playing squad in my lifetime, 3rd he has bought land to build decent training facilities (more important than the ground)! The plans left by Milan are rubbish, people are/were excited by them because they are better than what FP is now, but have a look at them again, and tellme the now south stand is something to be proud of??? As long as Sascha is willing to make up the lost revenue, what does it matter about a new ground, when was the last time we sold out??? I wonder how many people that moan about not having a new ground actually go to FP???

true danonash I thought the new ground was ok but only ok, nothing to be proud of. Understood milans thinking, but agree with Sacha its not brilliant. So give the man some time, and we will all be laughing. As they say He who laffs last.
