Following a seven-month international competition, Forest Green Rovers FC have selected a design for its planned new football stadium.

The new stadium will be constructed completely out of wood, with the aim of making it “the greenest football stadium in the world.”

The stadium will be the centrepiece of the £100million Eco Park development – a 100 acre sports and green technology business park proposed in Gloucestershire and owned by clean energy group Ecocity.

The new stadium will sit alongside grass and all-weather training pitches, publicly accessible multi-disciplinary facilities and a sports science hub.

Details of the meeting and events facilities at the new stadium have not been released. However Forest Green Rovers’ existing stadium has a large conference room that can accommodate up to 200 delegates plus eight smaller executive boxes, a gym and a dance studio.

The Forest Green Rovers new stadium will be located alongside junction 13 of the M5 motorway in Gloucestershire.
