New Stadium In Maidstone
Work to build a new football stadium by the River Medway in Maidstone is getting underway this week.
A former army sports field is being transformed into a £1.6 million, 3,000 capacity ground, complete with an all-seater main stand, covered terraces, a clubhouse, floodlights, changing rooms and parking.
When it is finished, it will be home to Maidstone United who are currently sharing a ground with Sittingbourne.
The club's co-owner Oliver Ash said: "This is a really historic moment for the club and the town and in these current times will provide a major boost to the local community."
The new ground is ideally located on the outskirts of Maidstone town centre, just minutes from the M20 and M2, two mainline train stations and numerous bus routes.
It will be one of a number of cultural and leisure attractions in the area, alongside the 18-acre Whatman Park and the new Kent Library and History Centre, which is due to open next spring.
