Club President Wael Al Qadi said: “During my time at the club, we have constantly been looking for new ways in which we can improve The Mem and provide a better experience for supporters. I am sure the new stand will be welcomed by all supporters”.
Replacing the previous tented South and Southwest stands, the new solid-roof structure seamlessly integrates the entire space, incorporating a full wrap around design. The development will enable the creation of a concourse area underneath the stand with the aim of bringing fans together to enhance the match-day experience.
“This is an incredibly exciting project and one which we’re delighted to be helping deliver. The Memorial Stadium has a rich footballing history, and this project will increase capacity and accessibility, while maintaining the venue’s identity – and ensures fans have the very best view of the action”
Scheduled for completion before the 2023/2024 season kicks off, the South Stand comes following a successful period for Rovers on and off the pitch. The increased capacity and accessible seating options will enable more supporters to attend games, aligning with the club’s desire to make the stadium more inclusive for all fans.
