Southend United Stadium

Southend, England, United Kingdom

Southend United, in the south east of England, are planning a new, 22,000-capacity all-seater stadium, sited at Fossett’s Farm. The site and stadium itself are to be shared with other commercial activity including a hotel, retail units, conferencing facilities and residential units that will contribute to the vibrancy of the site.

The stadium requirement is borne from the club’s need to renew their current ground with a new Stadium with improved capacity and player/spectator facilities. Southend’s ongoing success and playing in the higher leagues demands greater spectator capacity and quality. Moving to a new site will allow the club a relatively simple move between seasons, it will allow the club to improve its surroundings and will liberate its existing site for improvement.
