Mansfield Town chairman John Radford has completed the acquisition of the One Call Stadium, the League Two football club’s home ground.
Mansfield said in a statement that John and Carolyn Radford have issued the final cheque to Keith Haslam, one of the club’s former owners, under the terms of an agreement to buy the stadium back in March 2012.
Payments have been made each year, with the final one having been issued last week. The deal means that Mansfield is now in full control of the destiny of the stadium, which has a capacity of 9,100.
John Radford said: “When I did the deal with Keith I looked forward to this day and being able to announce that we were completely in control of our own destiny as regards One Call Stadium. This is great news for me and the club.”
The final payment brings an end to a long-running dispute between Radford and Haslam over the ownership of the stadium. Radford bought the club in 2010.
Mansfield is aiming for promotion from League Two and currently sits in third place with nine games of the season left.
