Stadium for Cornwall takes a huge step closer to happening

Cornwall Council have decided to give £3million towards the £14 million proposed Stadium for Cornwall.

The partners behind the stadium – Cornish Pirates, Truro City FC and Truro and Penwith College – approached the council in January to ask for £6m of public funding.

If the council didn’t back the project it’s believed the stadium won’t have gone ahead.

Majority of councillors from all over Cornwall have given the go ahead and granted the funding.

As the project stands the funding will be for the first phase of the stadium which would see a 6,000-capacity stadium built, complete with a fitness centre, business and conference centre, kitchen training facilities and full facilities for matchdays.

The west stand, which is part of the first phase, would have 4,200 seats with the remainding capacity in standing areas around the 4G pitch.

The stadium partners have indicated that they want to start work as soon as possible with a view to having the stadium ready for the start of the 2019/20 season, so, ideally August 2019.
