Work Set To Begin On AFC Fylde Stadium

Wed 11th Mar 2015 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

AFC Fylde is set to begin work on their new stadium project this week in Wesham.

Based at Mill Farm Sports Village, the 6,000 capacity project will include a modern 2,000 all-seated main stand with supporters’ bar, restaurant, nursery, executive boxes, offices and a function room.

Part of a wider scheme comprising state-of-the-art all weather pitches, a full-sized floodlit football pitch, food store, petrol station, hotel and public house, the project will see AFC Fylde benefit from state of the art facilities and generate more than 400 jobs for local people.

David Haythornthwaite, Chairman of AFC Fylde, commented: “We’re delighted that work is starting on site.

“It’s been a long road but we are finally here and extremely pleased that within a year we will have some excellent facilities that will bring the local community together and provide them with a place to enjoy time with friends and family, whilst supporting their football team.”

Richard Kenworthy, Managing Director at Warden Construction, added: “We’re proud to have won this prestigious contract which will help put AFC Fylde on the map both locally and in the world of football.

“This project will generate several employment opportunities both at our head office and on site and will be endeavouring to ensure that at least 80% supply chain packages go to local businesses.”

Currently second in the Vanarama Conference North League, AFC Fylde has won 19 games this season and has ambitious plans to be in the Football League within 10 years.

The new facilities will give the club room to develop, as well as a providing a platform to build on its growing programme of activities for young people through the AFC Fylde Community Foundation.
