MILTON KEYNES | Stadium MK | 30,500

Was looking on the BBC today & saw areport on this stadium opening in Jan 2007- Was quite suprised theres nothing here about it as its been under construction for what seems a while- probably cause they only get 4,000 crowds- They must be optimistic to be building a 30,000 stadium.

Anyway found this link

I heard about this from a taxi driver in Milton Keynes earlier this year, I think the hope is that the young uns will grow up to support their local team

I think I read that it was being built in Denbigh North on the outskirts of Milton Keynes.

You think South West London couldn't support a team at the bottom end of tier 3 then?

phillip they moved the club from an area which already had football clubs to a big town with thousands of football fans without a club. It might not be a morally sound move but financially it makes perfect sense.

Thats if it works in the long run (ho ho ho).

YOU CANT MOVE FOOTBALL CLUBS.

I hope that wimbledon go out of business. I really do. You can take football away.

Support AFC Wimbledon.

Completely agree on all counts. Franchise FC (let's give the 'club' its proper name, please) is a pox on the arse of English football.

And as for club relocations/thefts making 'financial sense' - why stop there? Blackpool are having a tough time of it at the moment. Crowds are down and they are languishing near the foot of League One. So let's move them to Basildon. I'm sure Stanley Matthews wouldn't have minded one bit if his old club moves nearly 300 miles across the country. They would have a new name, new kit, new fans and be dispensing with over 100 years of tradition, but at least they would be able to improve on sponsorship revenues.

I'm still waiting for Franchise FC to go bust, and failing that - getting relegated out of existence would work for me as well.

Thanks for the pic.This is going to be worse than the Darlington stadium when open with 80% of the stadium empty during matchs.

What i don't understand is why they are buiding a 30k seater stadium. Surely they can't fill that! Even the Royals decided to build a smaller stadium with a possibility to expand it and they have a much brighter future than MK Dons.

That external render of the stadium looks so German! Change it! And 'they' should paint the seats different colours (like some of Portugal's stadia) so the stadium looks fuller when it is near empty on match days.

In a few years, they're going to have the best stadium in the Conference South.
