Grant Thornton backs Cardiff City stadium

Championship side Cardiff City, which is hoping to build a new football
stadium in Leckwith, has had its business plan assessed by football experts from
mid-tier firm Grant Thornton.

The club had the business plan assessed by the firm before submitting it to
the Cardiff Council.

The club is now confident the proposed 30,000-capacity stadium will get the
go-ahead from city councillors after Cardiff council chief executive Byron
Davies confirmed he planned to bring a report on the viability of the Leckwith
development to meetings in May.

‘We are to continue to examine whether the business plan is viable and I’m
very much encouraged at the progress being made,’ said Davies.

The club has until 31 May to prove the viability of the scheme.
