Dundalk have set up a Stadium and Facilities Redevelopment group focused on developing a Category 3 stadium for the North East.

The proposed project will also include a Centre of Excellence for sport, entertainment and business in the local area.

This initiative has cross-party political support in place to bring the best possible facility to Dundalk by exploring all options in the area.

The Stadium & Facilities Redevelopment Group will engage with the local council and its chief executive as well as all relevant national Government and sporting bodies to support the initiative.

Dundalk Sporting Director Jim Magilton said: "The establishment of this Stadium and Facilities Redevelopment Group is a crucial first step in the development of a stadium befitting this club and town.

"The support of fans and townspeople will be crucial to driving this project forward.

"We all want a stadium and supporting facility that the club, locals and fans – both old and new – can be proud of.

"We all want a stadium that is accessible for all fans, with facilities that enrich the local community.

"We all want a stadium and facilities that are welcoming for opposition fans, at least off the pitch.

"We will strive, as a group, to make this happen. I’d like to thank Paddy Casey and Aaron Lawless for their tireless work in pulling together what is a fantastic working group. We can’t wait to get started."
