Harrogate Town have this week unveiled their new stands and announced that all but one are to be used for the first time on Bank Holiday Monday for when they face Gateshead.
With the club looking to secure a playoff place, they have built two new stands across four months to comply with ground grading criteria required for the club to compete in both the Vanarama National League and English Football League, which they now meet.
There is a third new stand, in between the 1919 Venue and Envirovent Stand, but will not be open by then as it remains to be completed.
It means that the stadium now has capacity of 4,108, including 600 covered seats.

A spokesperson for the club said, as quoted by Harrogate Advertiser: “We would like to thank everyone who has worked on the new stands over the past months, as well as our supporters for their patience in waiting for the stands to be completed.
“The opening of the new stands represents another milestone reached off the pitch and we hope you join us at Monday’s fixture with the new stands open for the first time.”Like what the Fan Banter have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
