The club announced this morning that it has appointed Trak Special Projects Ltd (TSP) to construct its new £5m main stand in Stonebridge Road. Work will be undertaken in two phases. Preparatory work starts on 4th January and demolition of the existing Liam Daish Stand will start in early May with the seating in the new stand becoming available in early October.
Chairman Dr Abdulla Al Humaidi said, “This heralds a new chapter in the history of Ebbsfleet United FC. The new main stand will transform the stadium as well as the perception of our club to the wider comunity at large. We hope it will help us to attract a new generation of supporters particularly at a time when the local area is to undergo radical transformation. I know how excited everyone is that this project can now start after the delays from last season which were beyond our control and no one is more excited than I am!”
David Grief of TSP said, “TSP are delighted to enter into contract with Ebbsfleet United Football Club to provide a new state-of-the-art football stadium. Enabling works will commence early in January with demolition and main contract works to follow in May 2016. These works, together with associated developments over the next few years, will make a significant positive impact on the area and we hope that we may continue to be a part of what will be a very exciting time for the club, the community and those living and working in the surrounding areas.”
There will be no disruption to supporters in the Liam Daish Stand in the period between January and the end of this season.
