The committee of Mickleover Sports Football Club are disappointed to have to postpone the building of a 3G stadium football pitch at the Don Amott Arena sports ground at Station Road, Mickleover. This was due to have been completed in July of this year.
Due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus it was felt that the health and safety of those involved in the construction of the pitch should be paramount. Consequently the uncertainty over its effect on the timing of the construction and the still unconfirmed start of the next football season, rendered the planning of the project difficult from both a financial and logistical point of view. With regret therefore a postponement was agreed.
The club remains convinced that this project is necessary for its future development and viability, and as a provision of important sporting facilities in the local community. It is anticipated that the pitch will instead be built before the start of the 2021/22 season.
