Club Statement: Clyde Gateway Stadium

Clyde Football Club is continuing its search to establish a future location in which it can be in charge of its own destiny for the first time in over 70 years.

The club can announce today that it has widened its search to achieve this objective and, to this end, has held discussions with Rutherglen Glencairn and South Lanarkshire Council regarding a potential opportunity to develop a SFL compliant stadium and associated sporting facilities on the current Clyde Gateway Stadium site in Rutherglen.

Subject to the agreement of the members of Rutherglen Glencairn at their forthcoming EGM on the 27th August, both clubs will proceed to investigate the establishment of a partnership which would aim to develop local facilities that can be used by the surrounding community in addition to Clyde FC and Rutherglen Glencairn.

These talks are in addition to the continuing discussions with East Kilbride Thistle and concerning the redevelopment of the Showpark in East Kilbride. East Kilbride Thistle are fully aware that the club has commenced discussions with Rutherglen Glencairn.

Negotiations with North Lanarkshire Leisure are ongoing with regards to a new lease arrangement for Broadwood Stadium, which the club hopes will come to a positive conclusion in the near future.
