Plans to redevelop the City Ground

Thursday 28th February 2019

Nottingham Forest have released plans to redevelop the City Ground.

The first major changes since 1994, the club will completely rebuild the Peter Taylor stand and add a new museum and shop as well as improved facilities for supports all around the stadium.

Improvements include:

  • New museum
  • New club shop
  • Hospitality lounges
  • Restaurants
  • Executive boxes
  • New spacious concourse
  • Improved facilities for disabled supporters
  • A substantial increase in wheelchair spaces

After an initial consultation period, it is hoped that building work will start at the end of the 2019/2020 season. The developments will make the City Ground the largest in the East Midlands, with a capacity of 38,000.

The announcement comes as the club extended the ground's lease with the local council.
