The Hive – stadium description
This project’s history begins in 2003, when groundbreaking took place in northern London. Initially it was supposed to become the home of Wealdstone FC, but the club’s commercial partners went into liquidation, stopping the development.
Entire site was made available in a tender in 2006 and Barnet FC took over in an attempt to leave their dated Underhill Stadium. The club succeeded and opened the entire complex in 2013.
The stadium has seated grandstands on both sides of the pitch, mostly covered, while both ends are occupied with terracing. The eastern side is conjoined with a vast pavilion, which comprises a fitness and medical centre. Together with 8 full-sized pitched, the site is one of London’s best football complexes.
In 2016, within just 6 weeks, the stadium was expanded by new north stand, covered and seated. With 1,900 capacity it's now the away section. Another similar stand is expected to be build in the south, this time with a large mixed-use pavilion behind it.
London: Barnet FC's grand plan
Their relocation from Barnet to Harrow is taking shape with increasing pace. In 2018 Barnet FC may have one of London's most impressive football complexes, even if not the stadium itself.
