Hull KR CEO reveals exciting stadium redevelopment plans

Hull KR are a club on the up.

They’re home to some of the most exciting young British players around in the shape of Mikey Lewis and Jez Litten.

They have also worked hard on the commercial side of things to grow the club and have done so to great effect.

Now the club is getting ready for the redevelopment of Craven Park in a move that will give them even more strength when licencing comes into play thanks to IMG.

Speaking about this, CEO Paul Lakin said: “Perhaps the biggest investment alongside this is our decision to purchase the stadium and the surrounding area, which is a landmark moment for the club. We’re seeing these changes pay dividends in terms of how the team is getting on and the revenues around the club.

“We are now have an opportunity to develop the land around the ground, to look at the art of the possible. Nothing will happen quickly, as we need to make sure we get it right. We will be brining developers in to ensure we are creating a facility to grow revenue and serve the community. We have aspirations to knock down the West Stand and rebuild a bigger and better facility.

“We have to focus on becoming sustainable, both in terms of our provision of facilities to develop the youth and become financially sustainable. Our first phase will be the creating a top class facility for the academy, first team and foundation, providing a place to work, a gym and eventually our own 3G pitch. At the moment only one 3G facility exists in Hull at the University, so we must focus on our ambition to create one of our own for the club and the community of East Hull.”

So it seems that the club is gearing up towards a new West Stand as well as facilities off the field as well.

It is an exciting time to be a Rovers fan.
