Scottish Premiership football club Dundee has outlined plans for its long-awaited vision of a new stadium complex.
Dundee has played at the 11,850-capacity Kilmac Stadium since it opened in 1899 and has harboured hopes of a new home since 2017.
Indeed, the club had hoped to move into a new stadium for the 2020-21 season back in 2018, only for these efforts to fail to come to fruition. However, Dundee has now detailed plans for a 15,000-seat multi-purpose stadium, stating that it has appointed project consultants who will engage with the city council.
While no timeline for the project was detailed, Dundee is planning that the stadium complex at the Camperdown Park area of the city will also include an 850-plus capacity conference venue, a 120-bed hotel, and leisure and retail offerings.
Dundee managing director, John Nelms, said: “It is time for us to take the next step and take it to fruition. So we have engaged the project consultants, they are now going to be engaging the city council.
“I’ll now be engaging all the leaders in the community. It’s time to get this project off the ground and get something in Dundee, for Dundee, that can be a jewel to bring excitement and energy to the city.”
