Default pos investment in ground???

Got this today on twitter source is BBC. Apologies if it is old news but date was today.
Wrexham's Racecourse ground deserves a boost if government money is available to back a new arena in Cardiff, a Plaid Cymru AM has said.

Llyr Gruffydd said he "read with amazement" that Economy Secretary Ken Skates supported proposals for another venue in the capital.

The Plaid AM for North Wales said there was already "a plethora of venues along the M4 corridor".

The Welsh Government said it would be for the club to put forward plans.

"We're not getting our share and we deserve better," said Mr Gruffydd.




He asked where the "vision and ambition" was "to develop similar centres of excellence here in the north".

Mr Gruffydd said Eirias Park in Colwyn Bay had been developed as a rugby and entertainment hub, but the Racecourse football ground could do with more support.

The Racecourse is home to Wrexham AFC

In 2008, the stadium was officially recognised as the oldest football stadium in the world still hosting international games, with a 200-year history as a sporting venue.

Wrexham AFC fans, who run the club, signed a 99-year lease to take it over last year.

Mr Gruffydd described it as "the oldest surviving international football stadium in the world" and "the spiritual home of Welsh football" which was "moving forward" under community ownership.

A Welsh Government spokesman said: "Wrexham AFC and the Racecourse have a long and proud history. It would be for the club and its owners to put forward plans and a sustainable business case for any improvements to the stadium.

"The Welsh Government has been engaging with the club over future plans and we have also held discussions with other groups concerning other facilities in the north of Wales.

"No financial support for an arena in Cardiff has been promised and the Welsh Government is keen to support the development of strategy for sports facilities fit for the 21st Century across Wales."

Have you any evidence to support this or is it speculation on your part?

It says in the statement, nothing up to that point in time had been put forward.

The silence to a very simple question asked by many now is very telling. Still don't get why the club didn't get behind those looking at purchasing a small plot of land around the rear of the kop, we've seen how well BTB has done, the WAG may have matched funded too, possibly along with the council. The WAG has matched funded a the expansion of Llangollen Railway as it will benefit the area, surely somewhere that can host world class sport and music concerts will benefit the area too.
