After 7 years of regular payments One Call Stadium, home to Mansfield Town, is officially owned by the team's new owners John and Carolyn Radford. This enables improvements in the future.
As reported earlier today, Mansfield Town FC owners now also own the team's stadium, Field Mill. This makes their 2010 takeover complete. Following acquisition of the team, John and Carolyn Radford agreed terms with former owner Keith Haslam on stadium takeover in 2012.
Since then they have been making annual payments to Haslam in order to take full control of the stadium, known as One Call Stadium for commercial reasons. Final cheque was filed last week. While no imminent work at the stadium is announced, having full control of the ground makes planning a lot easier.
Commenting on the deal chairman John Radford said: “When I did the deal with Keith I looked forward to this day and being able to announce that we were completely in control of our own destiny as regards One Call Stadium. This is great news for me and the club.”
Mansfield Town are now near the top of League Two, fighting for automatic promotion to the third tier of English football.
