    Great to see it coming together, can't wait for my first match in the new ground.

    A question though. Can someone please enlighten me as to the financials of the build, total cost of stadium and how it is being financed? Ta

    All I can say is what we were told at the planning stage. The Council/NWDA are taking care of the costs of cleaning up the site plus installing services and building the footbridge (c10 million between them). The sale of KR plus directors' loans is financing the stadium build. At the time this information was shared, the value of KR was 8 million. Whether that is the final figure obtained by Saints or not I don't know. I've heard the overall figure for the stadium as being 25 million but that could just as easily include all the preparation work to the site and the services taken care of by the Council/NWDA.

    Fantastic pictures. I usually get down every couple of weeks to have a look but I can see more from your photo's than I can see actually there. Keep em coming.

    The North stand does look a little tight for space under the stand for bars toilets etc as it currenly stands unless it is going to be extended back?

    it really is looking far better than I ever imagined.

    drove down PX road a few times at the weekend and was gobsmacked at the size of it.

    Awesome work Saints!

    That's what I was wondering too. I mean I am no expert in building stadiums etc, but it does look like a squeeze.

    Maybe it's because we aren't get close enough and in perspective to the whole stadium it just looks tiny...?

    As a generally modest guy who doesn't like to be too positive, I have to say this new stadium is looking mighty impressive. It could just be the best purpose built RL stadium in the division.

    just to add to what SaintPeter said about the weather, went down this morning and the North East corner has about a dozen pieces left to put in place, the steel erectors were just hanging about doing nowt.

    I think its a bit deceptive, as when your close up its huge so there is more room that you would think and i would think that the concessions ets would be in the space under the stands rather than poking out the back.
    Pre-Match drinks?
    try the George Hotel , George St
    St Helens , A real Saints pub
