Revamp At Sixfields

Revamp At Sixfields

Not only could Northampton be renting out Sixfields to Coventry for a few years the stadium is also going to get a makeover.

A deal with Northampton Borough Council to revamp the stadium with a hotel, corporate boxes and a conference centre have been agreed.

Cllr David Mackintosh, leader of Northampton Borough Council, said this on the official website: 'We made a long term commitment in our election manifesto to help Northampton Town Football Club redevelop Sixfields Stadium.

'We have agreed a redevelopment partnership with Northampton Town Football Club that involves a housing scheme and small scale, local retail development on land, upon which the football club have a 150 year lease, as well as adjacent land near the stadium. We recognise it will take a number of years for the profit from this to come to fruition, so to allow matters to proceed in the meantime Northampton Borough Council will loan the club up to £12 million to allow the redevelopment to go ahead as soon as possible.'

Cobblers chairman David Cardoza added: 'This will take the football club in to the 21st century. In this day and age you need the opportunity to generate income 365 days a year and this will give us that.

'We plan to build a hotel, a conference centre, corporate boxes, to offer better facilities to supporters, to have office space to let and much more. The plan is to make the club self sufficient in the long term so it is not relying on any one individual.

'The aim is of course also to generate more money from these additional income streams so we can increase the money made available to Aidy Boothroyd and the football side of the club.'

Planning application is scheduled to go in this Autumn with it hoped that the "much improved facility" can be seen in a little over a year.

Exciting times for Northampton ahead it seems!
