Hereford FC extend lease on Edgar Street
Hereford FC have negotiated an extended lease term with Herefordshire Council that ensures Hereford FC will stay at their Edgar Street home for at least a further 10 years.
Edgar Street Stadium and the surrounding area continue to improve following the opening of the new shopping development and the construction of the new City Link Road. Additionally, there is an opportunity for the Blackfriars Terrace end to be redeveloped, as part of the proposed Urban Village project.
As a result of this the stadium would return to having four sides with a new spectator stand with facilities together with more retail outlets.
Hereford FC’s CEO Ken Kinnersley said: “It is quite apparent that the council recognises the work of many local people who volunteer at the club and also the financial investment in stadium renovation since April 2015. A longer lease time will justify further investment to fund improvements, allow time for a return on the investment and ensure we are eligible to apply for grant funding that may be available for future projects.”
