League Two: Stockport County announce Edgeley Park Stadium expansion plans

Stockport County have announced plans for a phased redevelopment of their Edgeley Park Stadium, eventually raising the capacity to around 20,000.

Speaking about the club's plans, Stockport's non-executive Chairman Ken Knott said:

“Edgeley Park has been our home since 1902 and the Club has been a key part of the community in Stockport for 120 years. With our ambition to play Championship football once again, we’ve got a real opportunity to invest in the stadium and create not just the sporting facilities we need, but to create a ripple effect reaching further into Stockport itself, boosting the town and its economy.

“We know promotion to the Championship will take some time and delivering the emerging plans will also take time; by proposing to deliver new stands in phases, culminating in a final capacity of approximately 20,000 seats, we can reduce the impact on the Club and our neighbours, while still playing at home.

“Involving our neighbours and supporters early in the process of designing these expansion plans is very important to us. Our aim is to create excitement and ambition not just within the Club, but across Stockport.”

The plans include two brand new stands as well as the expansion of another, with planning applications to be submitted following public consultations. The club hopes to start the first phase next summer.

County are currently 16th in League Two having won the National League last season.
