Fulham’s New Riverside Stand Expansion Will Theoretically Look Like This… (Photos)

By Chris Wright

Fulham’s Riverside Stand as it…well, stands

The designs for Fulham’s prospective Riverside Stand expansion have been circulated ahead of the club’s application for planning permission being submitted.

Fulham are planning to build over the existing stand, removing pillars to improve the views from the lower tier, improve Craven Cottage’s facilities with a swanky new concourse area and, perhaps most importantly, increase the ground’s capacity by just over 4,000 – up to that magic 30,000 mark…

How about that? Pretty damn swish, no? Though it may stick out like a sore, space-age thumb considering the rest of the Cottage is the stadium equivalent of a Tudor half-timbered farmstead. Sadly, it also looks like that damn Michael Jackson statue is going to survive!

If it’s more photos of Fulham’s stadium redevelopment you seek, they’ve got loads (including a few architect’s sketches) over at the brilliant Stadium Porn.

    Slightly Amex Stadium-esque

    Please.. Oh Please.. just keep the vintage style about the stadium. Great ground.

    as long as they don’t get rid of that REALLY old looking stand – cause that’s just pure class. agree with BallsDeep, this might be too modern a design

  5. says:

    Looks pretty cool, but they better not updte it all the way round. The cottage side across from the neighborhood is still so cool looking.
