Possibly look at a 5000 seater stand on the kop but with a plan to build another tier on top and make it to 10000 in time using the existing stand. As you can tell I am no architect lol

I just wish someone (the Welsh Govt) would make a decision and commit the money to clearing the Kop. Once it's all gone, we can look forward regarding redevelopment but the costs of clearing it are going to be considerable; maybe £1m+ and that's plucking a figure out of the air.

i did raise this in the Q & A a couple of weeks ago, Spencer seemed to think the new owners would not affect the WAG involvement in the redevelopment as it forms more of an overatching Wrexham Gateway project

WAG have also bought the rights to the land surrounding it as they want to tie it all in with the train station etc.

Also a 15,700 capacity stadium would be fine for the Prem - its more than Bournemouth has - in fact we arent far off it with our current capacity!

Relax, the gateway project has no completion date and sounds like it'll be done in phases, plus the stand is a small part of it. The garage will hopefully be demolished very soon, the paperwork has been submitted.

On the stand, it could well see funding pulled or reduced due to the new owners, hopefully at minimum the land gifted.

Apparently we should be seeing plans 'in the autumn', not long to wait hopefully.

What capacity do we need for Internationals at the top tier?

Think you need a category 4 stadium for nations league etc which needs 8000 seats.

Although I can't see us getting anything other than a friendly up here if we're lucky.

I think we will see plans earlier given that assembly elections are in May , and some analysts think that Griffiths is in danger of losing her seat.

Have we seen any drawings/sketches etc of what the new stand will look like? I remember seeing a fantastic looking stand a couple of years ago but think that is probably way off the mark now.

I don't think a new stadium is likely - we don't own The Racecourse so can't sell that to pay for one. Plus I think the Racecourse, the history, that's part of the story the new owners are buying into.

A 5,000 capacity replacement for the Kop would be great, and hopefully that is in the works anyway. Later we could replace the Uni end if we ever had the cash, add more facilities and increase capacity that way. Yale stand is old but just needs some TLC and refurbishment. There is also scope to add more facilities under the MRS.

With all that, filling in corners, we could end up with a 15,000-18,000 capacity Racecourse which should be plenty for the long-term.
