Regarding the West Stand and the associated areas and following the press release from Telford College earlier this week, AFC Telford United have made the following statement. The College statement stated that they have been trying to sell these facilities for some time.
AFC Telford United have for many months been having good discussions on this very important topic, with the College, the freeholder Telford and Wrekin Council, the Hotel and other parties, in respect of the short and medium term, as well as the longer term. The current owners the College are in a good way, continuing to provide our access to all areas the football club needs access to on match days including the executive boxes and are adhering and more, to all the access rights specified in the various leases and the custom and practice of many years. The only change is the football club will with immediate effect source its own catering, for at least the rest of this season, into the executive boxes and for the away club directors.
Regarding the longer term, we continue discussions with the parties referred to in the paragraph above, but we are confident that we have uninterrupted use of these facilities as a permanent right as per the various leases ect that are very long term. Additionally the football club are pursuing what future opportunities this matter may present to us.
