New Stadium, Same Address

I know I'm late on this, but it has been a hectic weekend.

Anyway, enough about my personal life, let's get down to the news.

The new Ivor Wynne Stadium (or whatever it ends up being called) is no longer a renovation job, but a full-blown new stadium.

It was revealed on Friday that the north side stands "would not accommodate seats with backs because of the grade." That means that Ivor Wynne Stadium will be a brand-new facility with no remnants of the old building present as the north stands will also be replaced. The plan already called for the south stands to be replaced, but initially, the north stands would have just been renovated. That is no longer the case, and the whole thing will be brand new.

So we fans get to venture to the same address we've always gone to, but we will be watching games in a sparkling new stadium. It's a win-win if you ask me. The best stadium to watch a game in will lose its warts, but none of its charm. I couldn't ask for anything more.
