Nottingham Forest are proceeding with plans to expand the City Ground.
The Championship side are set to increase their capacity to over 38,000, as reported by The72 earlier.
The plans will mean the Reds’ home will become the largest football stadium in the East Midlands and they are hoping it becomes a Premier League venue in the near future.
Forest have enlisted the help of globally recognised architects called “Benoy” for a project they describe as “born in Nottingham, designed in Nottingham, built in Nottingham, from and for the people of Nottingham“.
The Reds’ ground hasn’t had work done on it since 1994 so it is exciting times for their supporters.
Martin O’Neill’s side are currently 9th in the Championship after their 1-0 win over bitter rivals Derby County on Monday night. They are now three points off the Play-Offs so have a genuine chance of getting there this season.
There is no doubt that the long-term aim of Forest is to get back to the top flight and this stadium redevelopment is certainly one steps towards that goal.
Many Forest fans will be looking to the future now. Here is how they have reacted on Twitter to the news that the City Ground is getting a revamp-
The plans for the redevelopment look amazing – so glad we are staying at the city ground. Good time to be following the reds! #nffc
