England: Club failed, now fans want to build new stadium As one fan-owned club is building their stadium, another group of supporters ends the 18-month long preparation and hope to get the council's green light. Worcester City fans are to file planning application for their new 4,000-capacity home.


Back in 2013 Worcester City FC left their 108-year-old home at St. George's Lane. The club had a new stadium plan initially, but as it fell through they're now left homeless, sharing Aggborough stadium with Kidderminster Harriers.

The club revealed recently it was facing financial difficulties and had a capital gains tax bill of £400,000. As WCFC are unable to fund the new stadium, supporters need to step in.

As announced in the late Supporters Trust's statement, its representatives have worked 18 months to put together a proposal for a new community sports development at Perdiswell.

Their plan foresees a brand new 4,000-capacity stadium at the price of £2.1 million. Details and their evaluation should be known soon, because the Trust now hopes to file their planning application on April 16.
