I am a forest supporter, a few years ago they where thinking of going in with notts county is that still the case or is it solely a Forest ground?
No, it's going to be solely a Forest ground. However, a second 10,000-seater 'Community Stadium' is included in the plans and the idea is that this will house Nottingham Rugby as well as being an athletics venue.

That's not going to happen as both Derby and Leicester have been told they are completely out of the running now. If the England bid is successful then any city not on the list of twelve host cities which the FA is preparing to submit to FIFA will not be under consideration.

The club's official line is that it does depend on England's bid being successful. If Forest do get promoted this year (and the fight for the automatic promotion places is very much a three horse race) and England's bid isn't successful, then the club has always said that if relegation is avoided in the first season back in the Premiership (but not before then) that work will begin either on a new stadium or a new Main Stand at the City Ground.

The heirarchy at the club is adamant that an expanded City Ground could never meet FIFA's requirements for a World Cup venue but would be viable as a Premiership venue so long as access issues for the emergency services could be resolved.
