Madejski Stadium Expansion Plans Re-submitted

Thu 7th Feb 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Premier League survival will see Reading re-submit plans to expand the Madejski Stadium according to chairman, Sir John Madejski.

In an interview with BBC Radio Berkshire, Sir John said the Premier League club are ready to re-submit a planning application to expand the club's stadium.

However, Sir John said the expansion will only go ahead if the club remain in English football's top flight.

"We are going to apply for planning permission again for that eventuality," Sir John told BBC Radio Berkshire.

Permission to expand the stadium was initially granted in 2007 but, under the approved plans, work would have to start by November 2013. The current plans allow the club to expand the Madejski Stadium by more than 50%, to increase its capacity from 24,500 to 38,000.

"Everything has to be considered," he added.

"It's important we get the squad right, we've got a great facility here already and the more we progress, the more chance we have of staying up and moving forward."
