Replacement for Faraday Road football ground in Newbury set to move step closer

Plans for football ground at Newbury Rugby Club approved

News update May-June 2021

24 June – 3 years since Faraday Road Stadium was closed and there’s still no replacement! Please sign our petition to re-open it!

The council is reluctant to share plans of its proposed ground at the rugby club and won’t reveal who will use it, when it will be built and how much it will cost. It is also obstructing our planning application for a 3G ground at Faraday Road and our proposal to re-open the ground temporarily while all this deliberation goes on… simply because the Executive doesn’t want it!

In the meantime, without any developments pending at the London Road Estate, why not sign our petition to allow football to be played at Faraday Road for a few months while we wait for a replacement ground? Sign our petition here:
