Leaving Hillsborough


Recommended Posts

I'm a Sunderland fan and I'm doing research on Roker Park. 

 

If you had an option to move into a state of the art stadium or stay at Hillsborough, what would you choose?

 

Thanks and hope you get promoted this season

Sheffield does not have anywhere appropriate to relocate to.

Also, Hillsborough could be changed on a decent scale, by demolishing one stand at a time over several years, starting with the away end and having them rebuilt during the season.

Research for what exactly?

Exactly. 

 

We would just make sure we shoot downhill in the first half.

Here's how Hillsborough could be developed

 

It's nearly perfect, but the away end roof needs to still say presto stand.

In an ideal world, stay and re-develop. Hillsborough should be in the same class as Villa Park is now, but we are 20 years of redevelopment and Premier League money behind Villa on that front..

 

If we are ever in a position where we can do either, I think it would be deemed more realistic (and possibly cheaper) to move. I’m a firm believer that Chansiri probably has some plans tucked away somewhere from when we were pushing for promotion in 2016/17. If we’d gone up then and stayed up, I think we’d have seen formal plans for a move by now.

Old Sheffield airport... There were rumours at one point that Chansiri had purchased the land.

 

Excellent Link to the M1
