If you go back to what was agreed during the sale of the club, what 98% of then trust members voted on :

Whilst the Buyer has no intention of changing any of the following heritage matters, the Buyer will need to obtain WST's prior consent with respect to:
4.2 Changing the playing location of the Wrexham AFC men's first team to a location more than 2 miles from the Racecourse Ground

So the only way to get any guarantee of future capacity or UEFA category 4 stadium is by agreeing to accept this lease surrender.
