NORTHAMPTON TOWN - SIXFIELDS STADIUM WORK TO BEGIN

Redevelopment work on Northampton Town’s Sixfields Stadium will begin on Friday with a groundbreaking ceremony.

In a joint venture between the football club, Northampton Borough Council and The County Group, the capacity of the ground will extend from 7,600 to 10,000 with a new East Stand and an updated West Stand. 

New houses, shops, a 100-bedroom hotel and a conference facility will also sit on the 33-acre site.

David Cardoza, chairman of Northampton Town, said it was a "momentous day" for the club.
