Wimbledon Stadium difficulties

Postby RiscaRascal » November 28th, 2019, 1:26 pm

Tenancy discussion inevitably triggers debate re a new ground. Wimbledon often crops up as an example we could follow. The article below suggests they have hit big problems with new stadium. An additional sum of £11 million needed. Huge finances involved...

On a serious note , somebody at AFC Wimbledon/Buckingham Construction has made a massive balls up with budgeting for this project ?

For a club that will probably alternate between Leagues One and Two, they seem to be going a bit OTT with the capacity and facilities at the stadium. Whilst some on this forum would be happy to commence building an £11m stadium, Wimbledon now have that figure as a shortfall. Whatever were they thinking about?

Is it that they are £11m over budget or that they're £n over budget and need to spend a further £11m to complete the project? I couldn't tell.
