With preseason closing in, I was just wondering if the new pitch has been completed. I haven't heard anything or been around the sportsgrounds this summer. As far as I recall it was due to be done during the offseason as the first phase of the new stadium.

I thought the same but it's being done next summer. They have to wait for all the funding to be in place before doing anything like that

So does that mean an already long term redevelopment is 1 year behind schedule straight away? Or maybe the pitch and the start of building the new training facility can both be completed at the same time.

Yes and no, AFAIK when the branch announced the plans they gave a timescale of works from whenever the first sod was turned and the press ran with dates assuming work starting as soon as the season was over. As was pointed out earlier in the thread, nothing starts without all funding being in place.

No, pitch has to happen first or they'd have nowhere to train.

Ah ya makes sense, pity as it means that we're now looking at 2024 for the earliest finish, on the 2nd part I was thinking if the pitch was done in the off season it would be complete for the new season and an alternative venue could be used for preseason, maybe Wegians pitch or Corinthians.
