Phase One of Exeter Rugby Club’s multi-million pound redevelopment of their Sandy Park Stadium is to begin early in the New YearThe Exeter Chiefs unveiled their long-term plans to double the ground capacity at Sandy Park to 20,600 earlier this year. They're also building three new grandstands, a 1,000 seater auditorium, and expanding the conference and banqueting facilities.
An initial investment target of £7.5million was set through the Exeter Chiefs 2020 Bond, and that target was met earlier this week - allowing the club to proceed to the first stage of the stadium's development.
The first stage will see conference and banqueting facilities in the West Grandstand enlarged to span the full length of the pitch, creating a venue capable of hosting more than 1,000 delegates.Additional seating will replace the current North West and South West terraces at either end of the grandstand; whilst the car park will also be enlarged and the main pitch re-laid.
