We have now been running the OEC for almost a month and this has allowed us to inject some much needed resource into the day to day operation of the facility.

We have been able to begin the planning for the wider stadium plans, as well as beginning to work through detailed plans with service providers for the top floor of the North Stand.

The space on the top floor will be developed as a top class hospitality facility, which will allow us to accommodate and put on events for up  to 500 people as it stands.

These confirmed plans include a matchday supporters bar, where will fans will be able to enjoy a pre-match drink in fantastic surroundings.

As we know many fans haven’t seen the top floor we’ve done a quick walk round video.


This is only a section of the top floor, but hopefully gives an insight into the space.  First fixes are in place, and you may also be able to make out some of the various fixtures and fittings ready to go into place.

Hopefully the outstanding matchday operation agreement will be signed off by the Club and returned soon.

Once this has happened then Executive Box and 100 club hospitality sales for the upcoming season can commence.  We will also be able to confirm two or three interesting events we have lined up for you.

We have some significant meetings this week, after which we hope to be able to share some further news.
