WCN Editorial Team 20 Jan 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Aberdeen FC Community Trust and Aberdeen Football Club have submitted plans for a football and community sports hub in the north-east of Scotland, UK.

Plans for the 24.5ha site at Kingsford include a 20,000-seat stadium and associated access roads, parking, landscaping and engineering works.

The project will also feature community and sports facilities, a football academy comprising outdoor pitches, a pavilion and ancillary buildings.

If approved, the new stadium will be developed with an investment of over £40M.

Aberdeen Football Club executive vice chairman George Yule said: "Our vision is to deliver essential community and training facilities and a new stadium, which will collectively support the ambitions of the Community Trust, Club and fans.

“This will create a focal point for footballing excellence and public participation in sport. This project is fundamental for the future of the Community Trust and the Club, and for maximising the benefits they can deliver for the city and region."

The project will be delivered in two phases — the community and sports facilities, and football academy will be constructed first, with the stadium left for the second phase.
