Stadium expansion under discussion

ROTHERHAM United will take expert advice on the possibility of expanding the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Officials meet with the architects on Wednesday, with the option of increasing the capacity from 12,000 to 20,000 up for discussion.

A smaller increase to 16,000 by raising the heights of the north and south stands is another consideration.

Chairman Tony Stewart told the Advertiser: “We'll be talking about the implications and the time scale and whether it would involve doing the work while we are playing football.

“We know we can go up to 20,000 but we'll consider whether it is worth doing that or more cost effective to do it in stages.”
