New Stadium on the way for Forest Green

They may be one of the smallest clubs in the Conference, but Forest Green Rovers are set to move to a new stadium just up the hill from their present site. So next Monday is expected to be the last time Hereford United will play at the Lawn.

The new stadium will be more than just a place for their team to play at. It will also provide a fully equipped health club, sauna, conference facilities, pub, kitchens for catering for all occasions and many other good things according to their website.

The new stadium will be a centre for sporting, social and commercial activities, never before seen in that part of Gloucestershire.

A venture such as this has to make money just like any other business venture and this will be reinvested in strengthening the team. Consequently, there will be changes to the Club's management structure. It is proposed that all commercial activities are put into a separate company to be owned partially by the supporters, through a share issue.
