Cornish Pirates – the professional rugby union team in Penzance, UK – will get a new home soon. A deal has been struck for the land on which the 6,000-seat Stadium for Cornwall will be built to be transferred to the Cornish Pirates.

The Stadium for Cornwall is a proposed multipurpose stadium in Threemilestone, Cornwall, England.

The stadium is set to come up at Langarth on the outskirts of Truro, and will serve as the home ground for the Cornish Pirates rugby union side and Truro City Football Club which is owned by Cornish Pirates owner Dicky Evans.

It will also provide training facilities for Truro and Penwith College and fitness facilities.

Remarked Dicky Evans of the Cornish Pirates, “I am delighted to say that we have completed all documentation requirements on the transfer of the land from INOX via the Council to the Cornish Pirates. This now means that we can proceed with the design and preparation of the construction documentation for the stadium and in due course go out to tender with a view to commencing construction on the designated site in time for completion in summer 2022.”

“There are no more hurdles to cross! At the same time, we can also now start fundraising in earnest, commencing with the launch of crowd funding in time for Christmas. We won’t know the final cost of the stadium until such time as we have completed our tendering procedures but doubtless it will have gone up from the £14 million envisaged two years ago,” Evans further remarked.

The multifunctional facility will also be used by other local teams in Cornwall and is expected to start operations in the summer of 2022.

Planning permission has been obtained for the arena and the funding has been provided by the partners and the Cornwall Council has also pledged £3 million.

The Council money, however, banks on another £3m being provided by the Government. It said that it was considering the request but the land needs to be secured first.
