The Premier League team Luton Town F.C. have released new images of their planned state-of-the-art stadium that would be a significant upgrade from their existing ground – the Kenilworth Road in Luton, England (UK).

‘m.allfootballapp.com’ stated that Luton’s current home Kenilworth Road has come under fire from opposition fans who have mocked the just-promoted-to-Premier-League outfit for their aging stadium that is set amidst a housing estate.

The Luton Town Football Club is a professional football club based in Luton, Bedfordshire, England (UK), which will compete in the Premier League, the first tier of English football, following promotion from the 2022-2023 EFL Championship.

The 10,356-capacity Kenilworth Road is an association football stadium in Luton, Bedfordshire, England (UK). It has been the home ground of Luton Town Football Club since 1905. The stadium has also hosted women’s and youth international matches, including the second leg of the 1984 European Competition for Women’s Football final.

‘m.allfootballapp.com’ further stated that the Luton Town Chief Executive Gary Sweet recently hit back at criticism as he expressed annoyance over complaints surrounding social media jibes that mocked the club’s premises.

Now, new imagery is being showcased of their new ground Power Court, with the club announcing final design plans that will soon be submitted for planning permission.

Plans will be submitted during the off season that would see the new stadium boast a 19,500 capacity, an upgrade on the existing 10,356 that the Kenilworth Road holds.

The club also report that a further 4,000 seats or safe standing section will be added in during a second phase of upgrades.

The images show a modern glass and metal framework, with the inside of the ground showing floodlights that are suspended around the entirety of the stadium.

Luton’s new ground would be erected in a 20-acre site close to the town’s Central Railway Station, providing easy access for home and away supporters.

The club have set a construction time of 24-30 months, meaning supporters won’t be able to get a glimpse until 2025 at the earliest.

Updating fans on the new development, Sweet stated, “We’re delighted the infrastructure element is underway allowing us to develop the detail of the stadium’s design and, in particular, work hard to capture the core characteristics that make Kenilworth Road so atmospheric, so intimate and so special to us. This season, perhaps more than any other, has demonstrated the incredible relationship we all have with The Kenny and that has been the driving force behind our design work. We know everyone is desperate for the new stadium to open – as are we!”
