There’s a lot more we want to do to put sustainability on the map for the world of sport. Our next step is to build what we believe will be the greenest football stadium in the world.
We’ve put in a planning application for a new stadium called Eco Park – and if we get permission to build it, it’s going to be something pretty special in world football.
Designed by world renowned architects Zaha Hadid and made almost entirely out of wood, it’ll be the first of its kind in the world. With a capacity of 5,000, Eco Park, would be sited in parkland where some five hundred trees and 1.8km of new hedgerows would be planted.
We’ve done a huge amount to showcase sustainable initiatives at our current ground, The New Lawn, but Eco Park will take our sustainable thinking to a new level entirely.
