    To answer the original question, the gable ends are being dismantled & rebuilt, due to safety issues, this should allow people to sit in the ends of the upper tiers & enable the club to open the changing room side of the stand.

    I reckon, if they wanted to, they could give the bottom section to away fans & fill it possibly 4 times a season (Sunderland, Aston Villa, Leeds, Middlesboro?)

    Wendy's if they are doing well when they come here, they might sell up too?

    very much doubt it!
    bare minimum i should think, they had to replace the facias & gutters to the front of it earlier in the season & did this a side at a time, in between home games, think it's more safety driven than cosmetic..

    That's what I thought.

    Shame as it looks an embarrassing **** hole and not befitting of a business with a multi-million pound turnover.

    I've heard due to pressure from fans to get players on "proper contracts" the club has appointed "Racks R us" to install "negotiating" equipment under the west stand.

    image.jpeg The Old Grandstand, which was built in 1926 and is owned by Exeter City Council, would have needed extensive repairs, and possibly faced permanent closure in the future if it had failed an inspection by the Safety Advisory Group (the organisation responsible for stadium safety). The improvements will cost in the region of £3.5 million.

    The new stand will offer a much enhanced fan experience, with no pillars to obstruct the view and vastly improved toilets and refreshment facilities. Exeter City Council has sold the freehold of the area of land behind the Big Bank at the club to the developer, who has also acquired adjoining land. Student accommodation of 312 beds will be built on the site.

    Prior to this the club had leased the land (behind the Big Bank) from the city council. The club has surrendered the remaining four years of that lease to enable the sale of the freehold. The city council will use the proceeds of the land sale to fund the redevelopment

    When they won 1-0 and Sharp scored the winner at that end, when they won 2-1 and Beattie opened the scoring in front of the Ponty, they also had the West Upper that day. They also sold out a couple of seasons ago when they beat us.

    Not possible at Oakwell. I guarantee someone can come up with a reason why Exeter can do it but we can't.

    Isn't that the pitch? Though I suppose you are right.
