Scunthorpe United Football Club or the ‘Iron’ confirmed this week that planning permission has now gone in for their proposed new stadium.
FWP were appointed by the Club – based in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, England – to create a masterplan for their proposed stadium relocation. According to FWP, the design aims to create a vibrant and modern development providing a real destination venue for sport, leisure and entertainment.
The proposed new 12,000-capacity stadium – which has a budget of GBP£40m – consists of a sweeping curve on the main stand, with a large striking truss paying homage to Scunthorpe’s steelwork history.
The masterplan for the site also includes the provision of an indoor soccer dome and several community sports pitches.
