Stadiums with Retail Enabling

The following stadiums have all been built or are set to be built with 'retail enabling'.

Parc y Scarlets
Location: Lanelli



Built as part of Pemberton Retail Park. Rugby team Ospreys

McDiarmid Park
Location: Perth

Built by Asda because they wanted the land of St. Johnston's former ground Muirton Park, the landowner Bruce McDiarmid was given 20% share in the club.

St. Mirren Park
Location: Paisley

St Mirren's former ground Love Street was sold for £18million to supermarket chain Tesco.

Stadium MK
Location: Milton Keynes

Well documented move for Wimbledon saw them move to become an enabler for a retail park in Milton Keynes which could never have been built without a football club.

Liberty Stadium
Location: Swansea

Built as part of Morfa Retail Park which includes a Morrisons Supermarket.

Ricoh Arena
Location: Coventry

Built as part of Arena Park Shopping Centre (I think it was built by Tesco) in Coventry, it saw Coventry City move from Highfield Road to Ricoh Arena.

They offer free parking for fans who spend over £25 at the retail park (excluding petrol).

Halliwell Jones Stadium
Location: Warrington

Tesco offered Warrington a new site just outside of town centre that would see them gain permission for a new supermarket.

New St Helens Stadium
Location: St Helens

Tesco offered St Helens a new site in the town centre that would see them gain permission for a new supermarket. Their existing ground Knowsley Road did not meet the new requirements for the Super League and were obligated to move ground if they wanted to stay in the Super League.

DW Stadium
Location: Wigan

Built as part of Robin Park retail complex.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&so...22724&t=h&z=16

Reebok Stadiun
Location: Bolton

Built as part of Middlebrook retail park. ASdA purchased their old site at Burnden Park.

It's a device used in UK to coerce a local authority to accept a planning application that it would not accept under normal circumstances. For example St. Helens' Council were not likely to accept the planning application for St. Helens new stadium if St. Helens Rugby club were not under pressure from Super League and also St. Helens fans may have voted the current councillors out of office if they felt aggrieved enough.

It didn't work for Everton twice! But it was a relief.

In 2003, Tesco were close to buying Goodison Park to build a supermarket but it didn't receive planning permission.

In 2009, the plans were knocked back because the retail park was too large and would stifle surrounding towns up to 10 miles away.

I know Spurs' plans include a big Sainsbury's as well as a hotel, public space, houses too.

Done correctly, this sort of development doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing. I think Everton's proposals looked like a supermarket with a stadium tacked on, rather than the other way round to a certain extent though.

Spurs:

Has it ever been explained how the stadium owners/developers receive a subsidy from the retail?
