We welcome the club breaking its silence over plans for a new stadium at last week’s supporter consultation meeting. We hope this is a start to more regular and more detailed discussion on the proposals as the planning process for Old Oak develops.
The statement made during the meeting that the “stadium and all associated property development sits outside the club” again raises again the issue of ownership of a new stadium. We will be seeking assurances that the football club will maintain full control over a new stadium.
We oppose any big increases in ticket prices. We welcome the statement by chief executive Lee Hoos that he is happy to do more to “explain the business side of football” if this includes more information on the club’s plans for ticket prices in the future, and exactly why the club believes they should increase.
