Wrexham AFC are asking all supporters for their views on the planned redevelopment of the Kop at the Racecourse Ground, as well as information on how you have travelled to home games this season if you have seen the Club play in person.
We would be delighted if you could spare a few minutes to complete the survey, that can be accessed below, which will help inform our decision making in respect of this important project.
One of the stated promises in the Club’s Mission Statement was to ‘explore the renovation of the Racecourse Ground and improve the venue for the Club, for International Matches and perhaps, the occasional Tom Jones gig’ and it is this promise, we are seeking to fulfil.
The Club have engaged with the Gateway Partnership, which includes Wrexham CBC, Welsh Government and Glyndwr University, to consider how working together we could deliver a new Kop at the Racecourse Ground, as part of a wider development in the area.
One of the conditions of the Club's significant financial contribution is that on completion, the freehold of the Racecourse Ground must transfer to the Club's ownership. The Gateway Partnership is comfortable with this principle, but we want to make sure that you are too.
As you are aware, the Racecourse Ground is currently all-seater. We have the opportunity to consider reintroducing standing, as part of the Kop redevelopment. Without being prescriptive as to the form this standing could take, we want to understand if you feel fans having the choice to sit or stand should be an important consideration at this time. There are potential consequences with regard to staging International Football matches depending on our decision, hence wanting to seek your views.
Finally, with attendances on the increase at the Racecourse Ground and the plan to increase the capacity further, it would be helpful to understand how you travel to games, so we can address this matter in our planning application.
Please find the form below. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond accordingly.
