The Bristol Rovers Football Club (BRFC) is undertaking the Frenchay Memorial Football Stadium project in Bristol City in South Gloucestershire, the UK.
The project involves the construction of a bowl shaped football stadium with 21,700 seating capacity. It includes the construction of club bar, extensive club shop, banqueting and hospitality suite, convenience store, creche, gym, jogging track and approximately 1,765m2 of potential teaching space for the University.
In July 20, 2012, South Gloucestershire Council approved plans for a 21,700 seat stadium in Stoke Gifford subject to certain conditions.
The Arturus Architects LLP has been appointed as the architect, while Pegasus Planning Group appointed as the planning consultant and Buckingham Group Contracting appointed as the main contractors.
In January 2013, the project received approval from the Bristol City Council.
In August 2013, traders and residents have lodged a judicial review application against the Bristol City Council's decision which got dismissed in March 2014.
BRFC is evaluating whether to move ahead with the project or not due to financial crisis arise after Sainsbury’s pulled out of buying its existing ground, the Memorial Stadium in Horfield, leaving the club short of cash to fund the project.
In February 2016, Bristol Rovers was bought by a family of billionaire bankers from the Middle East. Wael al-Qadi, the new President of the club, said that a new ground would be built regardless of the outcome of a High Court appeal over the sale of the Memorial Stadium.
In March 2016, the club lost their appeal. However, thanks to the enhanced financial status and a recent promotion to League 1, the plans may be back on track.
BRFC is planning to commence construction activities on the project by January 2018 as the original planning permission will lapse in January 2018.
Planning activities are underway.
