Bristol Rovers High Court battle against Sainsbury's ends - with no decision

A week-long legal battle over the future of Bristol Rovers' Memorial Stadium site concluded in the High Court today.

The hearing was called to settle an ongoing dispute between the football club and Sainsbury's over a land deal involving the club's current home in Horfield.

After six days the hearing finally drew to a close today, but Mrs Justice Proudman made it clear she would not make an immediate decision on what she described as an "extremely complex case".

She has instead reserved judgment until a later date.

Mrs Justice Proudman, sitting in London, was told the football club agreed a deal with the supermarket chain in 2011, as part of its plans to move to a new ground on the Frenchay campus of the University of the West of England (UWE).

The terms of the deal were that Sainsbury's would buy the Memorial Stadium for £30 million and lease it back to the club for a peppercorn rent until its move to the new ground was completed - at which time a new supermarket would be built on the site.

The club would use the money to finance the building of the new 21,700-seat stadium.

At the time the deal was made, the court heard, there was no planning permission or infrastructure in place, the costs were uncertain and Bristol Rovers were still negotiating with UWE.

The Club is hopeful that judgment in its favour will be made soon, allowing it to draw a line under this dispute and move forward with the construction of the new UWE Stadium and planning for next season in League 2.
