Clyde FC Community Foundation has now submitted the final documents in its bid for Crownpoint Sports complex. This marks the culmination of many months of effort since the application processes to acquire the site from Glasgow City Council was triggered back in September of last year.
In a range of documents, which will now be assessed by council officials and elected members, the Foundation has constructed a compelling case to take on the complex, assuming all the responsibilities to operate it to its full potential for the community it serves, and enabling Clyde FC to return to the city nearly four decades after leaving Shawfield.
Supporters are reminded that this is a competitive process, and that another bidder is expected to return a submission by the closing date of the 30th June. While we take nothing for granted, as a club we are confident in the quality of the Community Foundation’s submission and will be sharing details of it with owners very shortly.
The Community Foundation’s Interim Chairman, Gordon Nisbet, commented:-
“On behalf of the Clyde FC Community Foundation, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the many individuals who contributed over the past nine months to the preparation and submission of our proposal for the Crownpoint complex.
“Their hard work, dedication and creativity have resulted in a very professional and persuasive application that showcases our strengths and expertise.
“Clyde Foundation and Clyde Football Club along with consultant partners are proud of what we have achieved together in collaboration, delivery of a high-quality submission. Thank you all for your outstanding efforts and commitment.”
A decision is expected to be made in September.
