WREXHAM Supporters Trust say they have agreed in principle to surrender the lease of the Racecourse Ground to the club. 

A statement released on Tuesday (November 7) confirmed that following a proposal from Wrexham AFC, the board had unanimously approved the surrender of the lease, subject to a vote. 

The update comes following Wrexham Council's decision to reject the club's appeal over the limit of supporters in the new Kop stand. 

Currently, the WST controls the lease of the ground, despite the club owning the freehold, following the purchase in February 2022. 

A special general meeting of the WST is set to take place soon, with members to vote on the proposal sent by the club. 

In the statement released by the supporters' trust, they say they want the lease to be replaced by binding covenants that ensure the club can't move away from the SToK Cae Ras.

A WST spokesperson said: "On Monday, November 6th the Trust board considered the proposal received from the club regarding the surrender of the current Racecourse Cae Ras leasehold structure.
"The board unanimously approved in principle; subject to the finalisation of the legal documents, to seek approval at a special general meeting of the Trust members to surrender the leases to the club and to replace them with legally binding covenants to ensure that Wrexham AFC first team’s home remains where it is today.
"The board will be issuing a members’ document pack next week and will convene the special general meeting as soon as possible in accordance with the Trust’s rules.


"Anyone joining the Trust after Monday, November 6th will be ineligible to vote on the lease surrender.
"We hope as many members as possible will partake in the vote and we will announce details of the process in due course."

A Wrexham AFC spokesperson said: “We were delighted to receive confirmation that the Board of the WST have unanimously approved to propose to their members the surrender of the existing lease for the STōK Cae Ras.

“We look forward to receiving confirmation of the timeline to the vote, and hopefully approval by the members.”
