Default Re: Racecourse

i am trying not to get carried away, but the situation we are now in is unprecedented, we all know that Wrexham can attract substantial followings ie, Burton game, grimsby game with a thousand locked out, a few seasons ago when mills had us playing like real Madrid our attendances were rising by hundreds every game, even without investorsin a promotion season we would fill the ground for the last quarter, now however something differant is happening this is not just Wrexham, Mold, Deeside, Flint, Ruthin, Denbigh
etc etc this is global, we are going to be very much in the public eye and interest in attending games is not going to be governed by former criteria it is a whole new ball game, so to speak

Getting rid of the smarmy "my" bit and simply reverting to the Racecourse ground again would be welcomed my many.

Long term future of the Racecourse, for if we ever made it big, was compromised as soon as those flats went up. If you look at the footprint of whats available at the Racecourse and whats been built elsewhere then the New York Stadium in Rotherham is a similar size at 12k.

If we wanted regular international football at the Racecourse, for example 1 competitive international a year, i think the FAW would want to see a 20k stadium like the Liberty stadium.

I've been saying this for years.

It's got to come down and the cost is only going to go up.
I understand the buildings on the corner of Crispin Lane have been acquired in readiness to be demolished as part of the Gateway Project, why stop there?
Once the bulldozers are in, don't stop until they reach the flats.

Or better still, take them down as well.

Was the Welsh Govt involved with demolishing the old police station or were those costs covered by Lidl?

Fingers crossed she will be, another who's failed for the area. Cardiff are getting another arena - how many do they need? - while in North Wales we're crying out for such a space. This will be supported by Welsh Government cash which I think would be better spent in the north, Wrexham would be ideal. Wales Comic Con is in Telford because it's outgrown Wrexham and no suitable alternative is available, throw in the popularity of the Racecourse gigs to.

To be clearer, they should be unveiled this autumn.

Think everyone needs to manage their expectations.

A new stand is at least £1k a seat and then there is ongoing costs. So it needs to be sustainable... i.e. have the fans.

The kop development is going to happen as is the gateway project. Clwyd South MS Ken skates needs it before the assembly elections next May, the council leader needs it before his election the year afterwards.

We're in a pandemic, it's going to take a lot of extra time, just look at chapter court, techniquest, etc. There are other priorities for the welsh government like keeping businesses afloat and helping them develop during these difficult times.

We have three sides and four corners to play with. The problem is getting the machinery in, out and over land not owned or leased by the club, university, the council, transport for wales and welsh government.

Let's the club focus on getting out of this league, through league two and into league 1.

I'd be happy at the moment with a new Kop and improvements to the other stands. Better Toilets, Bars , food kiosks etc...
Repairing leaky Roofs, Replacing damaged seats etc... Just make the old girl tidy and fit for purpose.
