'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Project Manager on the Millers new stadium

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart said that, within the next few weeks, we will be able to see a difference on the Guest and Chrimes site, where the Millers new stadium is being built.

Due to probable flood problems, the ground has had to be raised and the work started this week with Mr Stewart saying that 'it would now start to get exciting.'

Millers fans have been waiting for a new stadium for some years but the last three, which they have played in Sheffield at the Don Valley Stadium, have been hard and no one can wait to be back in Rotherham in the clubs own ground.

Project Manager of Gleeds, Simon Morris told MillersPlayer that it had been a long journey for Rotherham United and they are now at the next stage of that journey to get them back into the town.

'There's been a lot of work with the design, the local authority and planners who are now physically doing work on site,' Mr Morris said. 'People will now see a lot of activity on site and we are now starting with the foundations and in the not too distant future you will see a stadium coming out of the ground.

'The first task was to clear some of the vegetation that had grown up over the years and to make sure that we have a good platform to work on. Within weeks material will start to be brought in and the ground will start to appear. There'll be two or three months of preparation and foundations and then, about Autumn time, you'll see concrete for the new build going into the ground. Not long after that there will be the steelwork.

'No project is ever smooth and there are still challenges ahead but it's good that the club have always been supportive and we are still looking forward to the challenge and also to the first game of the 2012/13 season. There's a long way to go until that point but we are ready to go for it.'
