STADIUM WEBSITE UNVEILED FOR MORECAMBE

Morecambe Football Club have unveiled a website about their new planned stadium build.

The Coca-Cola League 2 club will move into their new home at the end of the current season as they say goodbye to their current home ground at Christie Park.

Photos and news will be updated regularly on the site regarding the development of the ground on Westgate.

A statement on the new website explained what information they will provide for Morecambe fans throughout the development right up until the opening of the stadium later this year.

“Good progress continues to be made on site and we remain on target to start the 2010 /11 season from our new home on Westgate.

“Even at this early stage it is clear that the new stadium will be a significant feature of the local area and something we will be proud to be associated with.

“Over the past 12 months the Directors of the club have continued to develop our plans for the club's future. As ever we are determined to take the club forward in a manner which is sensible, affordable and sustainable.

“We have re-examined our business plan and made some prudent changes to the design of the stadium. We have sought to provide new 'income streams' which will be used to support and improve team resources as we progress in the Football League.

“Our objective in creating the new facility is to ensure the sustainability and success of the club now and for future generations of supporters.

“This website will offer you some guidance on what new facilities we are providing and will keep you updated with weekly updates from site including pictures of the work under construction.

“I hope you find the site informative and that it stimulates your appetite to become a member of the Football Club and a regular user of the facilities.”
