ArupSport pitches in with plans for £100m multi-purpose stadium in Salford
ArupSport has submitted for planning these designs for a new stadium for the Rugby League team the Salford City Reds.
The £100 million project, which will include the 20,000-seat stadium, will also involve the construction of a 10,000m 2casino underneath the pitch. Adjoining the stadium - part of the same development - will be a 208bedroom hotel, with some rooms with views of the pitch.
The designs, for a site on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, in Barton, also include proposals for a 24,000m2 retail park next door.
The club and the practice aim to complete the stadium for the start of the 2006 season.
