'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mitchell: We are in two minds

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell believes that it is probably more likely that a temporary stand will be installed on the south stand next season.

The Cherries are hoping to begin work on a new permanent fourth stand of the Goldsands Stadium and had hoped it could be built in time for the new Championship season.

But a decision on the size of the new stand will not be made by the AFC Bournemouth board until later this month and if they opt to build a larger stand then planning proposals will have to be made which would slow down the process.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo...

"We are in two minds as to whether we build a replica of the North Stand or look further ahead and build something slightly bigger. If we did that, we would have to go back to planning...'

'...As a result, we need to decide whether we redesign and go for something bigger. We would look silly if we had the opportunity to build a stand to increase the capacity to around 15,000 and had to demolish another one. It is something we may want to re-plan to get the capacity higher.

"One way or another, there will be a stand there but it will probably be a temporary one for part of next season. If we were to build a permanent one, we wouldn`t be able to have it ready for the start of the season. It needs a lot of planning so we might well opt to go for a bigger one."


In December 2012 Mitchell announced plans to redesign the proposed new south stand at Dean Court.

In May 2012, AFC Bournemouth had opened their doors to local residents and Cherries supporters over a two day period to display proposals for a new South Stand and 36 bedroom hotel.

Over 200 people attended the public exhibition, hosted by planning consultants Tanner & Tilley.

The Cherries previous plans included a 3,400 seated stand alongside a hotel and spa complex, but the December plans were for a smaller development, which included a 2,500 seat stand and 10 sponsors` boxes.
