RUFC - Chairman delighted at Magna turn out

Rotherham United' Chairman, Tony Stewart said he was 'delighted' at the turn out at 'Meet the Contractor' meeting at Magna yesterday.

Three hundred people turned out as the Millers' Board met with prospective clientele and outlined plans for the new stadium while giving people the chance to pledge their involvement.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Mr Stewart said, 'Because the new stadium is all the buzz in Rotherham now we felt this was an opportunity to give local contractors a chance to have a slice of the action.

'There's been a great turn out and they've got the opportunity to look and apply their skills to talk to the main contractor and will be able to tender for work. It's a big development site and I've not doubt that people are interested not only in the stadium but to get some work in the local community and really this is what we are offering.'

Asked about the stadium itself, Mr Stewart said, 'It's probably a three stage operation. Because of the flood alleviation area, we have to fill in the ground and that starts next week and will take us to about August which is basically lifting the ground up about two metres. Then we are into the main build where the steel construction starts and that takes us into the new year and the last phase is the fit-outs. Then there are the outline areas around the stadium where we are still looking at opportunities to build, whether it's cafes, restaurants, hotels or whatever.

'The main thrust of stage one, two and three is to get the stadium built and to get into it in time the start of the 2012/13 season for which we are very optimistic and we believe it will happen.'
