EFL club granted permission to build new 16,000-seater stadium on 250-year deal


OXFORD UNITED have been granted permission to build a new 16,000-seater ground on a staggering 250-year deal.

According to BBC Radio Oxford Sport, the U’s and Oxfordshire County Council have signed the legally binding agreement on a lease at Triangle site near Kidlington.

The club, though, must honour pledges to the community on social, environmental and economic benefits.

And the agreement currently hinges on planning permission being granted by Cherwell District Council.

This comes after recent news suggesting Oxford’s current ground the Kassam Stadium will become a driving school for kids.

Parts of the Kassam are set to be transformed into a realistic road for learner drivers to practice on.

Young Driver will change a section of the club’s car park into a road equipped with roundabouts, junctions as well as traffic signs.

It will also include areas for prospective drivers – some of whom will be as young as 10 – to practice on their manoeuvres.

And the EFL club is now set to be on the move within the next few years.

An excerpt of a club statement read last month: “Our focus is on securing the long-term future of Oxford United and delivering on our commitments to the Oxfordshire community.


“The Heads of Terms being agreed is another step towards that ambition.

“We’re delighted Oxfordshire County Council has also given an undertaking to sign the remaining key legal and partnership agreements this week.
