Rose Bowl delivered for June opening
Steelwork has been completed on two new stands at Hampshire County Cricket Club’s Rose Bowl stadium near Southampton.
Part of a £48M redevelopment, the scheme will transform the venue into a leading international cricket ground with an increased capacity of 25,000. The new stands will be officially opened for the floodlit England vs Australia One Day International on 22 June.
Constructed either side of the existing main pavilion, the stands will include catering facilities, a new club retail store, executive boxes and corporate lounges, as well as seating for debenture holders.
Main contractor for the project is Northern Ireland based McAteer & Rushe, and the steelwork programme was carried out by Rowecord Engineering.
Further plans are afoot at the venue, with work recently beginning on a 175-bed hotel.
