Wakefield Trinity Wildcats will make a significant statement concerning their plans to move to a new stadium in 2012 at half-time during their Round 23 Engage Super League fixture against St Helens at Belle Vue Stadium tomorrow (Sunday).
James Elston, the Wildcats’ Chief Executive, said today (Saturday), said: “There has been a considerable amount of speculation concerning where this club will play once we leave Belle Vue at the end of 2011 season.
“During the last week or so our fans will have seen in the local, regional and nation media a great deal of information and it’s our intention to put the record straight.
“So that they know exactly what’s happening to the project, our chairman Mr Ted Richardson will make an important announcement from the pitch concerning the proposed Wakefield and District Community Trust Stadium and the club’s involvement with the project during the halftime interval.
“We’ve spent a great deal of time during the last two weeks discussing the project with Wakefield and District Community Stadium Trust, Wakefield Metropolitan District Council and developers of the Newmarket site, Yorkcourt Properties.
“Now we’re in a position to say something meaningful to the fans and as the club’s paying customers it is only right that they should be the first to hear about the development and hear about it from the chairman.”
