Fulham FC Submits Planning Application for Populous-Designed Riverside Stand Redevelopment
Fulham Football Club has submitted an application to the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham council for the redevelopment of the Riverside stand at its historic Craven Cottage home.
In addition to increasing the seating capacity at Craven Cottage, the Club has sought to add amenities to help transform the riverside walkway into a world-class leisure destination, both on match days and non-match days. The application follows a period of consultation and open dialogue with residents, supporters, and many stakeholders with an interest in the project and local area.
Alistair Mackintosh, Fulham FC Chief Executive Officer, said: ‘Everyone here at Fulham Football Club is incredibly excited to submit this application, and we are confident that the plans we have laid out will both upgrade the current stand and add new facilities that everyone in the community will be able to enjoy and appreciate.’
Nicholas Reynolds, Populous Senior Principal and project lead, said: ‘We are delighted to be working so closely with Fulham FC to design a building that provides a great home for the team, and a great neighbour for our local community, all through the year. It’s a real privilege to work on such an authentic, world-famous football ground, and at the same time bring to life such an incredible riverside location in London.’
