I hope they start on one of these builds soon rather than prevaricating.
As well as the new tier on the south stand there would also be a row of executive boxes between the two tiers & there would also be executive boxes placed in the corner between the John street stand & the kop bringing up the capacity to well over 41,300.

Not sure what this seasons attendance's has got anything to do with increasing capacity! You take a look at other clubs who have either moved to a new stadium or have had rebuilds at their stadiums classic examples Liverpool, West Ham, Stoke, Arsenal etc they sell out, if/when we return to the premier league who's to say we will/won't sell out too?

That's not really a good argument. If a club isn't filling its current capacity it's fine to ask whether expansion is needed. All the clubs you've mentioned were selling out before expansion/moving.

Not saying they're wrong to expand, just that the logic of your argument (and the clubs you've chosen to make it) doesn't work.

So you're saying 'build it and they will come' 😀 again I am not saying your wrong either but current attendance surely has a lot to do with increasing capacity. Especially when current attendance is below capacity.

From another forum:

Quote:
Feel free to take this with a pinch of salt but apparently a respected contributer has posted on our main forum that this morning they’ve spoken to one of the architects working on this project.

The plan is that both the Kop and the main stand WILL definitely be expanded on the condition that we reach the PL and stay up for a single season. Work would start immediately after securing safety in that first season back.

The bolt on design at the back of the Kop means that most of it will remain open even whilst building work is being done, apparently 3,000 seats would need closing off at the back of the current Kop for a full season.

The South stand expansion is not so much about increasing capacity as 36K with the expanded Kop is probably the optimum capacity. It’s more about creating impressive corporate and banqueting facilities as that brings in the most revenue including non match days. I believe the final capacity would be around 42k, which is plenty.

The last time we were in the premier league we practically sold out every home game, we averaged just over 20k in league one & we're averaging over 25k. If/when we'll get back to the premier league the the away side will get the whole of the Bramall Lane stand then there'll be segregation to think about. Back in the early 90's in the premier league we were getting 34/35k against the big clubs so we do have the fanbase and there is a need for these expansions.
