Truro City FC are mulling plans to build a new stadium on the site of the failed Stadium for Cornwall project.

The Southern Premier South club are hoping to build the 3,000 capacity ground on the outskirts of Truro.

They have been playing their games at Plymouth Parkway's Bolitho Park since the summer of 2021 after selling Treyew Road. The new stadium will be paid for by money from the sale of Treyew Road.

Truro City's consultant Alex Black told BBC Spotlight:

It's going to be massive for the club. At Treyew Road they had great atmosphere, but I think everybody did recognise that stadium was probably getting a little bit tired.

But it was still by far and away the best football ground in the whole of Cornwall, and what we're going to be building now will be a much better version than that, it will actually be one of the best football facilities in the South West, so it's going to be great for us.

It's great that the team are doing well and are the top of the league, but we really want to be doing that in front of some good crowds and our fans, and that's what we're doing it all for.

The original Stadium for Cornwall was to be the base for Cornwall's main football and rugby teams, with community and conference facilities. But plans to build it collapsed in June when Cornwall Council decided not to put the project forward for government levelling-up funding.
