Redditch United Refused Relocation

· Redditch United’s (RUFC) history goes back 125 years. Our first team playing two leagues below the football league. RUFC is a community club represented by 20 boys, girls and disabled teams.

· We are hampered with a stadium with one pitch, two changing rooms and tired facilities.

· To secure the next 100 years involves moving the club from its existing stadium to world class, purpose built, sports and community facilities in Washford.

· This would create a new clubhouse, incorporating modern changing facilities, five grass pitches and an all-weather 3G pitch.

· This move would support facilities for 50 boys, girls and disabled teams within the next five years.

· The move is self-financing, with the building of the new stadium being dependent on selling the existing stadium.

· The Council would rent the new stadium to the club (as it does with the existing one) and could receive in excess of £1m into its bank account at the same time.
