Hereford FC have successfully negotiated a five-year lease with Herefordshire Council to ensure they can play football at Edgar Street.
The agreement and lease is due to run from March 2015 but is subject to contract and solicitor's final comment.
This means that the club can be registered with the Football Association in time to ensure that Edgar Street sees football back at the ground in time for the 2015/16 season.
We are delighted to announce Hereford Football Club as the new tenants for the ground. The last few months have been fraught; there has been great uncertainty over the future of the ground and I am personally extremely pleased that we have been able to put an end to that uncertainty after a difficult few months. We hope that the historic supporters of the club will welcome the news and support Hereford Football Club with the same passion and fervour as Hereford United.”
