Sixfields Redevelopment Breaks Ground This Week

Tue 11th Mar 2014 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

The County Group, Northampton Town Football Club and Northampton Borough Council will officially break ground on their joint venture development project to redevelop Sixfields Stadium this week.

The joint venture will promote economic stability for the local area as well as providing improved facilities for Northampton Town Football Club as part of a redeveloped stadium.

The development that is due to ‘break ground’ on Friday promises 33 acres of mixed use property; retail, residential and housing as well as a 100 bedroom hotel, connected to a conference facility boasting an ability to host up to 800 people. 

Speaking ahead of the redevelopment, David Cardoza, Chairman of Northampton Town said, “This is a momentous day for Northampton Town Football Club.

“We are so grateful to David Mackintosh and Northampton Borough Council for their support, without which we wouldn’t be in this position. They have been fantastic in helping to deliver a facility of which the town will be truly proud.”

Simon Patnick, Chief Operating Officer of County Group added, "It’s clear that the coming together of these 3 groups has led to a bright and prosperous future for Sixfields and its local area, not only providing future jobs, wealth and value to the area but also giving Northampton Town Football Club the ability to be self financing and having the opportunity to generate increased levels of income to help the club move up the football ladder and become a 24/7/365 business." 

Councillor David Mackintosh, Leader of Northampton Borough Council also commented: “This is a really significant day for Northampton Town Football Club and for Northampton. 

“Increasingly success in professional sports is as much about what happens off the pitch as on it and the expansion of Sixfields Stadium and the surrounding area will help to regenerate the west of Northampton and develop the club.

“We are committed to supporting the Cobblers, and helping the club to take full advantage of the business opportunities of being located in our Enterprise Zone.
