    Default Saints Stadium

    Is there any more progress on the proposed new stadium ?? Speaking to someone outside the ground last week, she implied that its being held up due to there being no decision yet as to which supermarket chain was getting involved in the project
    KNOWSLEY ROAD 1890-2010. A part of history soon to be no more...the place that meant so much to so many people. Farewell old lady, forever in our hearts.

    At present Saints stadium plans are a dream, that people are trying to make a reality.

    Some dreams come true, but most end up as just dreams.

    Saints have kept things close to their chest as they dont want people building their hopes up only to find that nothing comes to fruition.

    Unfortunately the very fact Saints have said they are investigating the idea of a new stadium, means some fans have taken it literally to mean a new stadium will be built. When in fact at present the situation is that the club are trying to negotiate with various parties the funding that would allow a dream to become a reality.

    The fact is, if negotiations dont work out we will be at Knowsley road for a long time. Even if they do work out, Saints could find themselves in a situation like Halifax with a half built new ground, due to funds running out, if things dont work out as planned. Therfore everything needs to be as watertight as possible.

    A new stadium is NOT an essential part of the business stream just yet.

    The finances at St Helens have been stabilised and income streams increased over the past few yers to ensure we are no longer running a hand to mouth club.

    Talk of 2009 and franchises are rediculous, KR is a large stadium holding more than many in the race, we do have corporate facilities and plenty of seating, we also have the junior setup and the on field setup that is required. few teams will turn out more points in the franchise system than Saints.

    So in all we know the benefits of a new stadium, we know it will increase our pressence hugely in the town and area, and it will increase business streams and reduce the amount of money spent on upkeep of the stadia.

    As the CM says, it is a dream, and it will come when it comes.

    there is no need to rush, lets get it right and ensure its finincially viable and we keep our control of our own ground and our own destiny.

    they need act quickly or they could find themselves out of superleague if the franchise system comes into affect in 2008. One of the criteria needed is that the ground be upto a certain standard which at present the hallowed ground that is knowsley road isn't upto the standard required by superleague chiefs.

    New Stadium, ex UGB site, SCA packaging relocating to Merton bank to clear that area. Pilot holes being drilled on site, ready for major new development. Could this be the start of something big ?
