AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn has revealed that the Cherries have identified three potential sites for a new stadium.
In December, AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake announced that the Cherries intend to leave both Dean Court and Kings Park within the next four years following failed discussions with both Structadene (Dean Court landlords) and Bournemouth Borough Council regarding a revamp of Dean Court (click here for previous article).
Cllr John Beesley insisted that there was a real will amongst Bournemouth Borough Council to find AFC Bournemouth a suitable location for a new stadium (click here for previous article) and whilst Mostyn wouldn’t claim that ‘an ideal’ site had been found, he has declared that there are three potential sites that could eventually become AFC Bournemouth’s new home.
Mostyn also revealed that the club have employed a full time project manager.
Mostyn told the BBC…
‘We are in the same embryonic stage, We still haven’t identified an ideal site but we have identified three sites which have potential.
‘It is a very slow-moving project but we are in talks on a daily basis. We want to find the right site that is suitable for the purpose and all our supporters.’

One of the three possible sites must be Wessex Fields (between the RBH and Playgolf) because it is designated for office/employment use and the Council are desperate to get partnership funding for a new link road from there onto the Spur Road. There is already funding in place for some of it.
So I wonder where the other two sites are? – Join the conversation here.
