To fund the build of a new community stadium for Marine Football Club

by James Leary in Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom


In 2019 we launched a 5-year plan to move Marine Football Club forward in all areas on and off the field. A crucial piece to that plan was to try and try and resolve our stadium constraints which have proved a challenge.

2-years ago we embarked on a project to progress with the build of a new stadium. Our ideal aim is to retain the current Marine Travel Arena as a community hub and build a new purpose-built community stadium. Having a top class community facility with one of the only 3G pitches in the Crosby area is something we do not want to lose. This is however funding dependent. Marine Football Club is targeting the raising of £5m to complete the development of the new stadium. 

We have identified 16 sites within the local area and explored each one to assess the feasibility from a planning perspective and from a construction perspective. We have now reduced the 16 sites down to 3 potential locations.

Meanwhile, our progress on-the-field has evidently been staggering. We are now in a position where our attendances have increased to an all time high. Our promotion means that not only are we expecting another step-change increase in attendances, but our need to remove the constraints that limit us as a football club has accelerated dramatically. 

For everything we have achieved though in the last 5-years, it is nothing compared to the size of the task we have ahead of us with the stadium once the land is secured. The funding is key to making it happen along with getting agreement from the key people involved with us securing the land in the first place. 

Marine Football Club is on an exciting journey. The delivery of the stadium is set to be one of the biggest community projects in the UK in an area severely lacking in the type of facility we want to build. BUT it can only be done with the togetherness and the backing of the community.

Marine CEO James Leary commented "Any donations through will give us a great start to making our project a reality"
