In association with Wexford County Council and SETU, Wexford FC, Wexford Football League and Wexford Women’s League are set to move to a new custom-built stadium in Wexford Town with capacity for 4,000 to 6,000 people.
The news was confirmed by Wexford County Council Chief Executive Tom Enright at their Council meeting earlier this week.
A new football stadium will form part of the council’s ambitious plans within an area from Killeens across to Whiterock Hill.
The clubs existing home at Ferrycarrig Park is set for a compulsory purchase order to facilitate motorway infrastructure and that will provide a foundation of the funding needed to deliver the new project.
“This announcement is not just great news for Wexford FC, but it’s great news for Wexford football as a whole,” Wexford FC CEO Tony Doyle said.
“These facilities will be there for everyone – the Wexford Football League, the Women’s League and Wexford FC as the League of Ireland club. It’ll be a game-changer across all strands of our game.”
Club sponsors Campion Insurance are fully supportive of the new plans as well.
Tony Doyle will be appearing on the Sport for Business ‘Business of Football podcast in the coming weeks to discuss the development of the club and the new stadium project.
