DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE l STADIUMS


■ Scunthorpe United Scunthorpe, UK Opening: TBC


Scunthorpe United Football Club (SUFC) has revealed ambitious plans for a new 12,000-capacity stadium. SUFC chair, millionaire business-


man Peter Swann, has been keen to provide the club with a new home and move from the 9,000- capacity Glanford Park to increase the club’s commercial opportuni- ties. To be located close to the club’s current Glanford Park ground, the ‘Iron Arena’ is set to be developed as part of a mixed-use project including a 120-bedroom hotel, a multi-use indoor arena, community sports pitches and a new transport hub. The initial designs and master


plan have been created by the Frank Whittle Partnership and include a sweeping curve on the main stand and a striking truss which pays homage to Scunthorpe’s famous steelwork history.

players. Exact details of the stadium facilities are to be confi rmed later this year, but plans include a large club shop and a museum. Tamas Szabo, managing director of DVTK,


said: “Our goal is to make DVTK one of Hungary’s dominant football teams in the not so distant future. For us to be able to compete in European competitions, it is necessary that we invest in our infrastructure – of which the youth centre is part of.” The mayor of Miskolc, Kriza Akos, said the


development would not benefi t just the club but the Miskolc region on the whole. • Miskolc is the third largest city in


Hungary, following the capital Budapest and Debrecen. Budapest was recently named as one of the host cities for UEFA’s Euro 2020 championships. Games will be played in the new national stadium that is still to be built. Details: http://lei.sr?a=p5R3e
