Sheffield Wednesday unveils stadium proposals

Sheffield Wednesday Football Club (SWFC) has unveiled new plans to redevelop its Hillsborough stadium in a bid to be included as one of the host venues for the 2018 World Cup.

The scheme, which the Coca Cola Championship club anticipates will cost a total of £22m, will include increasing the venue's seating capacity from 39,812 to 44,825 and the construction of a new landmark roof structure for the Kop stand. Pillars will be removed to provide unrestricted viewing for spectators and a new roof structure will be built on the West Stand as part of the proposals, which also includes a new learning zone, an extended North Stand and 17 new hospitality suites.

An outline planning application for the development has already been submitted to Sheffield City Council, and the club hopes the new look Hillsborough will be completed by the end of 2013. Lee Strafford, SWFC chair, said: "All fans would agree that Hillsborough is in need of investment and we are happy to present plans that will improve the fan experience, boost the club's revenue generating capabilities and also strengthen our ties with the local community, something which I believe all Wednesdayites can be proud of.

"The Hillsborough of the future will be community inspired. Football is a proven catalyst for learning, raising ambitions and driving social cohesion and I want to see us hosting schools, adult learning groups other community organisations all year round." SWFC's city rivals, Sheffield United Football Club, is also set to carry out work to improve stadium facilities at its Bramall Lane ground in an attempt to secure World Cup fixtures should England's bid for the 2018 tournament be successful.
