SUFC have unveiled detailed information on what the new stadium could look like.
FWP were appointed by Scunthorpe United Football Club to create a masterplan for their proposed stadium relocation.
The proposed scheme aims to create a vibrant and modern development providing a real destination venue for sport, leisure and entertainment.
The proposed 12,000 capacity stadium consists of a sweeping curve on the main stand with a large striking truss paying homage to Scunthorpe’s steelwork history.
The £30 million development has been granted planning permission by North Lincolnshire Council.
The stadium first opened its doors on Sunday, August 14, 1988 and brought gasps of disbelief from supporters.
At 2.55pm, Scunthorpe United filed out of the tunnel at Glanford Park, hoping to get off to a winning start in the new £2.5-million stadium.
The game finished 3-1 to the Iron, starting a new era in the perfect way, with victory and three points.

“The proposed development of the stadium intends to provide an extra 3,000 capacity, which will increase the capacity of the stadium to 12,000 seats. This will be done through a phased approach to be agreed as part of a planning condition attached to any planning permission, however, an indication of a potential phased approach has been included on the schematic site layout provided with this submission.”
“The ground level will include toilet facilities on the east and south stand, with additional lettable space included within the east stand.
“The north stand at ground level will incorporate toilet facilities, lettable space and a supporter’s bar. The west stand incorporates the reception area, club accommodation (for football use only) with lettable space and toilet facilities.
