Developing the east stand at Bloomfield Road remains Blackpool’s priority in light of promotion to the Barclays Premier League, the club has confirmed.
The Lancashire club also found some land in Lytham where it hopes to build new training facilities after chairman Karl Oyston admitted promotion to English football’s top flight will “change the face of Blackpool FC forever”.
Seasiders secretary Matt Williams told the Blackpool Gazette that moving up from the Championship means that the process of developing a new training ground has been placed higher on the agenda.
He said: “Karl has identified a site in Lytham where they have some land. He is going to put a planning application in to convert some of the buildings there into dressing rooms, and the fields to become pitches.
“Whether or not that is going to be ready in the next few months … I can’t see it. It will probably be ready in the new year. But it is something the manager has been heavily involved in. Both Karl and Ian (Holloway) have been looking at other clubs and their training grounds.”
