It was recently announced that Leamington’s new stadium plans have moved a step closer after Warwick District Council and Warwickshire County Council signed to buy the land where the development will be based.
It could see the construction of a 5,000 capacity football stadium along with a 3G artificial pitch, conference facilities, a gym, bar/cafe and community facilities.

The proposed designs for their new home…
Leamington’s chairman, Jim Scott said: “Leamington FC very much welcomes this key milestone in our ambitions to create a new home for our club. A new stadium with improved access and facilities will help us fulfil our aspirations to move into higher leagues. It will also allow us to develop and expand our presence in the community through our programme of football related activities. This will give more people the opportunity to get involved, be it as a player, spectator or user of the facilities.”
The Leader of Warwick District Council, Cllr Andrew Mobbs added: “I’m very pleased that after many years of planning it looks like this exciting project could become a reality. A new stadium and sports hub for our area has the potential to be a new focal point for the community with huge benefits for the health, fitness and well-being of our residents.”
