Scarborough Athletic’s joint bid with Scarborough Borough Council for a ground development grant has been approved by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund.
The club say that although there is obviously a lot of work still to do and hurdles to clear, they now have the green light they have been waiting for to increase capacity to just over 2,800, with the addition of a stand that will have around 340 seats and standing accommodation for 840. Scarborough say they are at an advanced stage in terms of design, production and construction requirements.
As well as the Football Stadia Improvement grant of £150,000, the naming rights for the Flamingo Land Stadium will provide £100,000. The club will be releasing further information as discussions continue and decisions are made.
