Posh Complete First Phase Of Stadium Redevelopment

Wed 3rd Dec 2014 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

The first stage of the transformation of Peterborough United’s ground by Lancashire architecture and design practice the Frank Whittle Partnership (FWP) is now complete.

The new £9m, 2,500 all-seater Moy's End at the club’s newly renamed ABAX stadium has been opened to fans and will be followed by the redevelopment of the club’s London Road terrace.

The work was started after Posh and Peterborough City Council reached agreement over the redevelopment of the ground, which is leased to the club by the local authority.

Its vision for the ground includes community facilities as well as providing a modern stadium for fans of the League One side to enjoy on match days.

The conversion of terraces into seating is also important for the club as it pushes towards promotion back to the Championship.

Neil Ainsworth, architect and partner at FWP, said: “Work on the Moy’s End was completed on time, which is a great testament to the whole team involved in the project. 

“It was great to see the stand filled with home fans and we believe they’re going to be really impressed with the new facilities created to enhance their match-day experience.

“We believe we have produced something special for Peterborough United and its fans, which will also add to the wider regeneration of the area.

“This is the first stage of our plan to give the club a vibrant, modern stadium as they look to achieve their ambitions of moving up the league structure on the pitch.”
