Blackpool reveal plans to build new East Stand

Blackpool reveal plans to build new East Stand

Sunday 20th March 2022

Blackpool are reportedly planning to build a brand new East Stand at Bloomfield Road.

Local newspaper, the Blackpool Gazette has unearthed the plans from council documents as part of a wider £39m regeneration of the area.

The current East Stand is a temporary structure, hastily erected when the club reached the Premier League in 2010. The club currently sit mid-table in the Championship.

The old stand would be knocked down in 2024 and replaced with a new 4,600 capacity structure in 2025.

The proposal also shows some redevelopment work to the North Stand to include a new club shop, bar and ticket office.
