Rotherham United Football Club’s application for planning permission was given the green night by councilors last night.
The South Yorkshire club, who have been exiled in Sheffield’s Don Valley stadium for the last two years hope to build a new 12,000 capacity stadium on the old Guest and Chrimes Foundry site in Rotherham.
Chairman Tony Stewart stated: "We are delighted that the Council have supported the application, for what is a significant regeneration scheme in Central Rotherham, which is proceeding at a pace despite the worst recession in 30 years.
“This represents another significant step towards our goal of bringing the Millers back home to Rotherham and we're all determined to make Rotherham United a Football Club that everyone in the town can not only be proud of but will feel a part of too."
Rotherham, who feature in this month’s issue of F.C. Business Magazine (page 56/58) hope the new stadium will be ready in time for the 2012/13 season.
