Peterborough United planning move away from London Road

Peterborough United planning move away from London Road

Wednesday 26th February 2020

Peterborough United are planning to move away from London Road to a new stadium built just across the other side of the river Nene.

The announcement comes as the League 1 side have reached an agreement with the council regarding the City Centre Development Framework which will see a phased approach to redeveloping an area known as the Embankment.

Details are scarce at the moment, but reports speculate that the stadium will have a capacity of 17,500 which will be expandable up to 23,000 should demand require it.

Early estimates put the cost of the project at around £40m, with the club being said to want to move as soon as the start of the 2022/2023 season - just 2 and a half years away.
