CEFO Group Stand to be open for Hyde game

The club is delighted to announce that the CEFO Group Stand will be open for the game against Hyde United on Saturday, December 11th.

It is set to be a historic moment as the new facility – which promises to be transformational for the club – welcomes supporters for the first time.

The front four rows of seating will be opened for the match, with work ongoing on the remainder of the stand, including executive boxes and the fit-out of the area underneath the seating, which is set to feature a new club shop, bar, boardroom, toilets and serving hatches.

South Shields FC chief executive Lee Picton said: “This is a significant moment which we have been looking forward to for quite some time.

“It has been exciting to see the CEFO Group Stand take shape over recent months and although its opening has taken longer than we had anticipated, we are confident it will prove to be worth the wait for our supporters.

“The stand will significantly enhance the matchday experience for those who would like an improved and elevated vantage point from which to view the game, and our target now is to fill all of the seats for the game against Hyde.

“All those who take their seats for that match will be a key part of what is going to be a historic occasion as the club continues its progression.

“We can’t wait to see the stand full and vibrant, with our incredible supporters roaring the team on.”
