SOLIHULL Moors have today announced a three-phase plan to meet Football League ground requirements and to update the current facilities to create a more family friendly, safe environment.
The first phase is to take effect immediately, with a new 1,131 all-seater stand installed on the Car Park Side Stand prior to hosting AFC Telford United in the FA Trophy quarter-final this Saturday.
It will remove the standing capacity previously allocated to this section of the ground, while segregation barriers and gates are also to be installed.
Moving in line with this change, the Wadsworth Stand is to become an all-standing terrace, removing the existing seats in place, with crush barriers also to be fitted in this section.
The club expect work to be completed by March 1st this year.
A second phase looking longer term around May to July this year will see improvements made to the Main Clubhouse Stand.
The stand will become all-seater – taking capacity to 1,219, while a new control room and a media room are to be installed, along with improvements to corporate hospitality.
Toilets, refreshments and disabled facilities around this side of the site are also to be revamped.
To round-off this part of the future plan, an improved floodlighting system is to be invested in by the club.
Rounding off the three-phase plan, the third phase is to be completed between May and July in 2020.
The installation of a brand new, all-seater stand of 2,000 capacity in the Car Park Side Stand – featuring 18 wheelchair positions, new toilets, refreshment huts and an away bar.
In addition, new changing rooms and a further extension to the Main Clubhouse Stand is to be made.
