Gloucester City have announced that work will commence on their new Meadow Park stadium in less than three weeks.
The club have not played at their old ground since huge flood damage in summer 2007, with various groundshare agreements in place since. The National League North side currently play their home games at Evesham’s Jubilee Stadium.
Stadium contractors Soldi will start on site on 6th January 2020, beginning work on the foundations for the new Category B ground.
The club state: “As part of our commitment to the National League to ensure any stadia regulations are met for the North or South divison, we have also begun discussions with clubs around a proposed ‘plan B’ for a groundshare for the 2020/21 season. Whilst our intention, as already discussed with the National League, is to begin the new season at Meadow Park, we must also have this contingency in place by March 31st to comply with league regulations.”
