Power Court Stadium – design description
New stadium for Luton Town could be built in Power Court, just 1.5km (1 mile) east from Kenilworth Road. The area lies almost in the strict centre of Luton and within easy access to public transportation.
Previously there were industrial buildings on the Power Court site, but the area was cleared in 2015 to make way for major revitalization project. Luton Town hope to make their 23,000-capacity stadium (initially planned for 17,500) part of that project and if all goes as planned, works might end in mid-2020.
