Dundee FC progress Camperdown stadium plans

Dundee Football Club has revealed more detail on its plans to develop a new stadium at Camperdown Park following the appointment of a consultant team.

The 15,000 capacity multi-purpose stadium would include a conference venue for over 850 delegates and 25,000 capacity leisure venue alongside a 120-bedroom hotel, leisure facilities, a crematorium and 70 apartments.

First mooted in 2017 the plans by LJR+H Architects would see the club vacate their historic ground at Dens Park in favour of a future proof home that would include state of the art training facilities.

Managing director John Nelms said: “We have engaged the project consultants, they will now engage with City Council. I’ll be engaging with the leaders of the community. It’s time to get this project off the ground and get something for Dundee that can be a jewel and bring excitement and energy to the city.”

In a bullish statement, Nelms said that 'it is time' for the project but gave no detailed timeline for delivery.

New stadium? How many or what proportion of seats will be affordable/available for social rent?

I'll believe this will happen when I'm sitting in it watching Saints go 4-0 up. Again.

Good to hear a club owner with 'bullish' plans who is not content with the present and is looking forward to seeing big things happen, hopefully putting his money where his mouth is, for a scheme with long term benefit for all parties.
Although throwing a 'curved ball' with inclusion of a crematorium. A very novel idea, most apt when your promotion/cup dreams go up in smoke each season. Nice work.

Dundeeā€™s popn is now far less than Aberdeen which has one club. Merger will never happen but what about a ground share?

is the inclusion of the crematorium so they can bring back "ash" pitches?
