Default Re: New stand

Single tier, safe standing, 5,000 capacity, modern facilities would be the dream.

Two tier makes it easier to fit in some corporate facilities as well as give a good placing to disabled platforms (at the front of tier 2)
Totally agree with you on safe standing

And executive boxes.

This makes the most sense. Top tier could be closed whenever low crowds dictate.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to incorporate new changing rooms and offices which would enable redevelopment of the Yale (B concepts stand)
Only downside would be the loss of the massive floodlights.

Stick them on top and when the International Space Station passes they can change the bulbs.

Only brand new stadiums appear to attract higher crowds. A new stand with the standard of our current facilities seems crazy. Just my take on it but I hope I’m wrong.

You clearly haven’t been to “Jonesy’s bar”. 10/10 for a quality slab of concrete complete with a stainless shelf.

Default Re: New stand

Does anyone recall the drawings / images of the stand which should have been constructed around the time of the flats ? Based on Headingly RFC - seem to recall a two tier example which has far more benefits than a single tier version.

It should be hoped that now the area of ground between the existing kop and Crispin Lane has been secured by the Welsh Government then options are better to add other facilities - we surely should be looking at something more than just a facility that is used solely on occasional match days - be it office space, Conferencing facilities, a large gym and fitness centre (imagine that - our very own club gym and leisure centre facility), the museum has previously been suggested or even a hotel as at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool - we need people with imagination to harness ideas that can catapult us back into the modern world and for once overtake those many clubs who have moved on whilst we have stood still for what is in effect decades.

Just putting up a single tier stand, a tin box with seats and nothing else is surely a backward step - there wont be a second chance and we have waited far, far too long already so lets get it right.

Will we actually have the opportunity to make extra money. Yes I presume we will have a lease on the stand but we won't own anything ( facilities ) that go with the stand. I am presuming the Welsh Government is not gifting the land to the club.
