West Brom celebrate Premiership survival by upgrading Hawthorns stadium

They have beaten the odds and achieved Premiership survival, now West Bromwich Albion has announced that they plan to expand the Hawthorns stadium and transform it into a 30,000-seater stadium.

WBA Chairman Jeremy Peace has stated that the Midlands club want to expand their ground from its current capacity of 26,500 and add an extra 3,500 seats, by extending the West Stand.

This could seem risky for a club that managed to escape the drop this season, but may struggle to survive in the Premiership next season, especially with West Brom being a classic yo-yo team between the Premiership and Championship. Mr Peace has addressed this, saying:

“Despite the apparent financial insanity of such a move, we believe it is the right thing to do as we endeavour to move the club forward and pro-actively encourage the next generation of supporters to come to The Hawthorns.”

Extra construction work on the Hawthorns is also going ahead, which is likely to create new jobs in the area.
