The so called ‘ Mecca of Cricket’, Lord’s Stadium is all set to undergo redevelopment and it will see a new stand at Lords. This will be done by removing the two oldest stands at Lord’s stadium, of which one was built in the 1930s and the other one in 1960s.
The whole redevelopment plan is assumed to be costing around £ 200 million and the new look stadium will be up before the Ashes 2022 in England. The final officil call will be made after the meeting of the Westminster Council’s planning committee today.
Not only this, the latest developments at Lord’s stadium will see the replacement of the old scoreboard and the use of retractable raked seating in the latest stand. This stand will also have 2 restaurants.
These developments will increase the capacity of the stadium to 30,530. Also, Thomas Lord Building, which is used for all the corporate events in the stadium, will also be rebuilt. This will see an extended beer garden as well as a scorer’s box.
However many people are not in the favour of the decision made by the authority as they feel that Lord’s stadium has somewhat lost it’s charm and rarely do they find the stadium a full house. So, there is no point in spending on these developments.
