Worcester City say they have an ‘in-principle agreement’ to return to playing in their home city, at the County Sports Ground on Claines Lane.
The club have been playing at temporary grounds since leaving St George’s Lane in 2013, with Bromsgrove Sporting’s Victoria Ground housing them at present. The Midland Football League Premier Division side have released a statement this morning:
Worcester City Football Club are on course to be playing back in their home city in time for the 2020/21 season, thanks to the announcement of an in-principle agreement.
Following discussions initiated by Worcester City Council and involving the Club, Worcestershire Football Association and the Club’s Supporters’ Trust, Worcester City FC are set to establish their new home at the County Sports Ground on Claines Lane in the city.
The site, which is currently being re-developed, is owned by Worcestershire FA and is also the home playing ground for Worcester Raiders FC.
The in-principle agreement has been reached after discussions established that Claines Lane would be a suitable location for the current needs of the Club.
