Crusaders yesterday confirmed ambitious plans to move to an £18million, 4,000 all-seater stadium at Giant’s Park on the north foreshore of Belfast Lough.
Investment for the move up the Shore Road from Seaview has been secured and is in place ready for work to begin on the project next year.
Club members this week voted strongly in favour of the plans with just a single objection. But the Crues now face a race against time.
They have just five months to secure Belfast City Council approval for the Trust company they must form to manage the project, otherwise the window of opportunity will be lost on a legal technicality.
