Livingston set to start next season in new stadium

Fri 8th Apr 2011 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Livingston Football Club could be in a new stadium for the start of season 2012/2013.

It’s understood a deal to sell their current home, Almondvale, and move to a new stadium around one mile away could be imminent.

According to BBC Scotland, the new stadium would have a capacity of more than 6000 and would be fully Scottish Premier League compliant.

The new complex will also include state of the art training facilities, with a full-size indoor pitch included in the development along with a youth football academy.

The deal hinges on West Lothian Council, the owner of Almondvale Stadium and the land surrounding it, concluding a deal with a supermarket for the sale of the current stadium and land.

It is understood that the negotiations for the deal are at a very advanced stage with the prospective retailers.

They initially played their matches at Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh but were renamed when they relocated to their present 10,000-seat stadium in Livingston in 1995.

Almondvale's current official name is the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium because of a three-year naming rights sponsorship deal.
