Old stadiums[edit]

Following crowd troubles in the 1980s and regulations imposed after the Taylor Report, several English league stadiums have been built or completely redeveloped in the last few years. Prior to 1988, however, the last newly built Football League ground in England was Roots Hall, Southend, which was opened in 1955.

Future stadiums[edit]

Stadiums which are currently in development, and are likely to open in the near future, include:

Stadium Capacity Club Notes
City of Manchester Stadium (redevelopment) c. 61,000 Manchester City In August 2015 construction of the first two phases of stadium expansion were completed and subsequently passed all safety requirements at a specially organised test event on 12 August 2015. The South Stand has been extended with the addition of a third tier of seats and three rows of additional pitchside seating have also been added to all stands, expanding the current capacity of CoMS to 55,097. A final expansion phase, adding a matching third tier to the North Stand, is expected to commence some time shortly (but the work schedule is still to be publicly announced). Completion of this third expansion phase will bring the stadium's total capacity to in excess of 61,000.[113]
Northumberland Development Project (unofficial name) c. 61,000 Tottenham Hotspur In October 2008, the club announced that, if approved, it was planning to build a new 56,000+ capacity stadium just to the north of the existing stadium at White Hart Lane, with the southern half of the new stadium's pitch located on the northwest corner of the Lane. The unique design of the build would allow the new stadium to be built adjacent to White Hart Lane as the old facility continues to be used for the team. During the summer after 2/3 of the new stadium was complete, the northern and western stands would be demolished and a new pitch laid. The rest of the stadium would be built in the years to follow. If it is built, club chairman Daniel Levy has stated that it will not adopt the White Hart Lane name, but will instead be named after a sponsor. The new stadium is scheduled to be completed in 2018 in time for the start of the 2018–19 season, but will require Spurs to play their 2017–18 home fixtures at an alternative venue while the final stages of the stadium's construction are completed. The plans were subsequently approved by Haringey Council and construction on the foundations for the new stadium had already begun by early July 2015 when it was reported that the proposed capacity of the new stadium had been increased to around 61,000 (which would make it the largest club ground in London); that it would feature a single-tier southern stand holding 17,000 fans (that would be the largest of its kind in the country);[114] that it would incorporate a fully retractable pitch (making the stadium multi-use and capable of hosting other sporting, entertainment and community events); and that it would also host two NFL games every season for at least the first decade of its existence.[115]
Stamford Bridge (redevelopment) c. 60,000 Chelsea On 30 June 2015, Chelsea unveiled plans to expand the stadium to a 60,000 seater stadium. The exhibition held at Stamford Bridge, for local residents, businesses, season ticket holders and members provided a glimpse for Chelsea fans of blueprints for a rebuilt 60,000 stadium which has been referred to as "a cathedral of football". The design pays homage to the club’s history as their one and only venue.[116]
City of Birmingham Stadium c. 55,000 Birmingham City Still in early planning phases as part of a large sporting complex. Very little of this proposal has been heard since Carson Yeung took over as Chairman of the West Midlands club.[citation needed]
Olympic Stadium (name may change) c. 54,000 West Ham United On 22 March 2013 West Ham secured a 99-year lease deal with the stadium planned to be used as their home ground from the 2016–17 season. The stadium's capacity is expected to be reduced from 80,000 to approximately 54,000. In May 2013 planning permission was granted for the first stage of conversion of the stadium to facilitate its use as a football ground.[117]
Anfield (redevelopment) c. 54,000 Liverpool On 15 October 2012, Fenway Sports Group announced their preference to redevelop Anfield as opposed to move to a new stadium. Although a number of media outlets have speculated on a 60,000 capacity, according to managing director Ian Ayre the specific cost, capacity plans and timetable for completion have yet to be confirmed[118][119] and significant obstacles to redevelopment remain, such as the requirement to purchase houses surrounding the ground from their current owners.[120][121] In addition, Liverpool City Council have announced plans for a regeneration of the Anfield area having secured a £25 million grant in conjunction with a housing association; it is unclear if this work is dependent on the stadium plans. On 23 April 2014 the club announced proposals for the redevelopment of the Main Stand which could add an additional 8,500 seats taking the Main Stand capacity to nearly 21,000 and the overall Anfield capacity to around 54,000.[122]
Selhurst Park c. 40,000 Crystal Palace Proposed redevelopment of Selhurst Park which would result in a 40,000 seater stadium.[citation needed]
Ashton Gate (redevelopment) c. 27,000 Bristol City Work is now under-way to transform Ashton Gate into a state-of-the-art 27,000 capacity stadium.

The work will consist of three separate phases to the Wedlock, Dolman and Williams Stands. The 86 year-old Wedlock Stand has been demolished and is currently being completely rebuilt, with new conference facilities, administration offices, sports bar, café and shops, before the Dolman Stand is redeveloped. Work will then begin to demolish and rebuild the Williams Stand.[123]

Fossetts Farm Stadium c. 22,000 Southend United Planned to be opened by 2010, but setbacks has led to the project being put on hold.[citation needed]
Brentford Community Stadium c. 20,000 Brentford F.C. Plans approved for a new stadium in Lionel Road half a mile from current Stadium. Site clearance and construction due to start in Summer 2014 with completion in time for the start of the 2016/17 season.[citation needed]
UWE Stadium c. 20,000 Bristol Rovers Bristol Rovers F.C. has plans to join in partnership with the University of the West of England to build a 20,000 all-seater bowl-shaped stadium on the Frenchay campus with a banqueting and hospitality suite, club shop, convenience store, crèche, jogging track, and public gym. Planning permission to sell the Memorial Stadium to Sainsbury's was granted but campaign from local group TRASHorfield blocked the development leading to a judicial review.[124] The judicial review took place in March 2014 with the judge ruling in favour of Bristol Rovers with over 1200 people signing a petition.[125] As of April 2014, it was unclear as to when the development could commence.
York Community Stadium c. 8,000 York City Proposed community stadium to be run by City of York Council and shared with York City Knights.[126]
Project Blue Yonder tbd Carlisle United Proposed new stadium for Carlisle United with a tentative target date of the start of the 2018–19 season. It is locally known as the "Blue Yonder" project due to its location outside the city.[127]
