They've even done the seats out in Cas colours ahead of the groundshare 😄

"Look what you coulda won!"

Cas shot themselves in the foot over any potential shared build when Ted Richardson loosely suggested it - they came right out and shot it down.

Oh, hindsight is a wonderful thing...

Would be a game changer for the club and with Toulouse coming up this commercial growth cant come soon enough.  

Would be another team who could get to the cap in a modern ground. Hull KR growing as well and RL in UK and Europe has a positive story to tell, if it wants to. 

 

I think we (Wakey fans), will still believe it when we see it

It's more than just the East Stand though.

There's a Community Hub, rebuild of the upper North Stand, and a 4G pitch.

£400k has already (just), been spent on new floodlights.

Of course, we don't know what the club & Newmarket developers agreed on in the end - but the club are happy they have the right deal.

The technical plans have been on the WMDC planning portal for months - the speed bumps have been agreeing the level of funding under a binding S106, and getting the joint plans for the ground and Newmarket (the warehousing at Newmarket pays for, at least partially, the BV redevelopment).

The funding package is now locked in - just need the plans approved in December, and the build can start in Feb.

You've got to think that now the council have put money into the club buying the land back that they will want to see some development too to show for it.

The council haven't put any money into the club.

They arranged access to a local government loan scheme, which the club pays, in full, on time, with interest. Is that what you meant?

There is however a section of the refurb given over to community use - gym, cafe, studios, meeting space.

Of course, you and everyone else but it would be fantastic and certainly alters the balance of power. Wakefield have been one of the clubs most worried about relegation and as such,  have acted in a protectionist manner.  If they suddenly start to be competing nearer the top and become less reliant on tv money, we might start to see a viable return to a 14 team league.

Can you explain this?

Obviously some near misses, but never finished bottom.

What have they done that's protectionist?

So then it's just fill in the rest with terracing , I was going to suggest covered , but I'd leave it open 

Capacity about 8,500 I'd guess 

It's a great question that us Trinity fans never thought to ask for the Q&A.

The current East Stand holds nothing like 2500 - maybe a 1000??? So a big leap there.

The North Stand has a safety limit on, so when the re-furb is done, maybe add another 1000???

Current capacity is just short of 8K I think - so maybe 10k when East and North are done - West to follow in due course.
