HANDOVER OF SPIREITES NEW STADIUM

Chesterfield Football Club are set to move into their brand new £13million 10,300-seater b2net stadium on Monday 5 July 2010.

This handover means the Spireites can begin preparations for the final fit-out of the stadium in anticipation for the new season.

The club still need to install IT systems for data communications, ticketing, and retail tills, furniture for the offices, conference and banqueting suites, stocking out the club shop, plus dealing with any final snagging work.

Chesterfield FC’s chief executive, Carol Wilby, said: “This is another key milestone for the club and one which means everyone’s dream of moving into a new football stadium is about to be realised very soon.”

The club’s old ground at Saltergate will continue to be used for the foreseeable future by the Chesterfield FC Community Trust for its Saturday Morning Club and Summer Soccer Camp on the pitch during the school holidays.

Admission details for forthcoming games will be announced once the club is operational at the b2net stadium.
