DONCASTER’S Keepmoat Stadium is no longer a ”going concern” because of debts racked up by spiralling losses.

And Doncaster Council is investigating whether the £32 million stadium funded by taxpayers should be knocked down and sold off as land for redevelopment.

The Free Press today reveals the full extent of how flawed the venue’s business plan has been.

As urgent talks are planned to disucss the Keepmoat’s future it is also revealed that more cash needs to be found to make sure the stadium meets safety standards so it can continue to host games.

The Free Press exclusively revealed last year that the council was in talks with Doncaster Rovers about the club buying the stadium - an option now included in a local authority report over the community stadium’s future.

For full in-depth coverage, reaction - including that of Rovers chairman John Ryan - and what the options are for the stadium’s future see this week’s Free Press out today.
