AFC Fylde supporters have been enjoying exclusive tours around our new stadium at Mill Farm.
Although we are over three months away from the opening of Bradley’s Sports Bar and five months to our first game, things are really starting to take shape behind the scenes.
The VIP tours, conducted by Club Chairman David Haythornthwaite, saw supporters walk down the players tunnel, see the changing rooms, visit the roof terrace overlooking the rolling Lancashire countryside and much more.
David said: “It was nice to have the opportunity to show existing and potential fans. I think everyone really enjoyed themselves and were pretty amazed by what we are doing.
“We plan to bring them back in about three months’ time so they can see the finished job prior to opening.”
Among the those taking part on the opening tour was Fylde mayor Peter Hardy, a fan for 30 years who is a former Chairman of the supporters’ club.
He said: “It was wonderful to see how the stadium is coming along and, with such marvellous facilities open through the weekend and all year round, it will be such an asset to the whole of Fylde.
“All credit to Mr Haythornthwaite for his vision and it will be a very proud moment when the team kicks off next season in the new stadium.”
