Council meets with clubs to progress MKM Stadium redevelopment

Hull City Council leader, Cllr Mike Ross, this week met with SuperStadium Management Company (SMC), Hull City executive vice-chair Tan Kesler and Hull FC chairman Adam Pearson to progress discussions on the redevelopment of the MKM Stadium.

Cllr Ross, along with council officers, met with Mr Kesler and Mr Pearson to hear more about the plans for the stadium.

Cllr Ross said: “It was good to meet with SMC and see the progress it has made on the proposals and discuss any support needed from the council.

“There would be wider benefits for the community and the professional clubs and it was great to be able to hear about those.”

Provisional proposals, which would see Hull City’s Academy relocated to the MKM Stadium, improved facilities for the Tigers Trust, along with a raft of improved community facilities in West Park, have been shared with the council’s planning committee as part of the pre-application process.

Hull City, Tigers Trust, SMC and Hull FC will now engage with the local community and other stakeholders in advance of submitting a detailed planning application later this year.

Mr Kesler said: “I’d like to thank Cllr Ross and his colleagues for their interest and support for our vision for the future of the MKM Stadium and surrounding area.

“Additionally, I’d like to thank Adam and also our colleagues at the Tigers Trust for their efforts and enthusiasm for a project that will bring benefits to so many people.

“We look forward to sharing our plans with the people of Hull in due course.”
