Finally it appears as if the Morfa Stadium is a go-er as the final agreement between Swansea Council and Miller Developments was signed on Friday and the stadium is scheduled to be ready for the Swans and the Whites in the 2003/2004 season.
The ball now lies with Miller Developments to set the start date for the stadium and commercial development. The news was met with happiness from both the council and the football club alike. Speaking to the Evening Post, Lawrence Bailey said "I’m obviously pleased at the news of this agreement. It represents a very important milestone in this scheme and gives the green light for investment. I don’t think that people have fully appreciated the incredible complexity of this project which involves land deals, financial packages, planning consents and reams of legal papers before a single piece of earth can be dug"
Swans director Dave Morgan added "It is very welcome. It is important not only for the football and rugby clubs but for the city and region. It will remove the reservations of those who thought it would not come about. We cannot wait to see construction work commence. They (the council) supported us and stood by us in out recent troubled past and now we can look forward to going to the new Morfa Stadium."
Basically now we have 14 months to see this stadium being constructed and we will of course keep you updated on the construction of this stadium. Lets just hope that we see this happen and that at the end of this season we can say a poignant farewell to the Vetch.
