WREXHAM AFC have released an update on the progress of the temporary Kop stand at the SToK Cae Ras. 

Plans were announced earlier this week that construction would begin on a new 2,289 temporary stand behind the goal at the Racecourse. 

The decision came following delays to the new 5,500 seater Kop Stand, which was meant to be in place for the start of next season.

The club said they wanted to allow more fans to see the Reds following increased ticket demand. 

In a statement released on Monday, a club spokesperson said: "We are making good progress resolving the outstanding matters before the Kop Development can commence, but with a minimum of three months mobilisation period before work can start on site, we can now install a temporary stand without negatively impacting the construction programme for the Kop.

"The costs of the temporary stand will be greater than generated from ticket sales, but the Board felt the priority was to enable more fans to see the team live and address the frustration felt by some that they can’t get a ticket for games."


The club said it hoped the stand would be available for use from December 23, when they face off against Welsh rivals Newport County at the SToK Cae Ras.

On Thursday (December 7)  the club released an image of the progress of the stand, much to the delight of fans. 

One fan said: "Holy hell it's going up fast, well done!"

Another added: "It's gonna look absolutely magnificent, up the town!"

One fan simply said: "So exciting!"
