Ground Profile

Fulham temporarily moved to QPR's Loftus Road for the duration of the 2002-03 season in order to accommodate the re-development of Craven Cottage into a state of the art 21st century stadium. Located right on the river bank for over 100 years, this unique ground will be transformed to a compact intimate Stadium that harmonises with the urban setting and brings supporters closer to the pitch. Incorporated into the design is the listed fa?ade of the existing Stevenage Road stand, designed by the Victorian architect and engineer Archibald Leitch almost one hundred years ago. The fa?ade's place in the new construction will serve as a monument to Fulham's rich history as the exciting future unfolds.

The Stadium will have a maximum spectator capacity of 30,000 with seating on three stands, affording 4 public concourses. All of the new facilities are contained under a high tech roof and of quality standards befitting a Premier League Club.

Executive Boxes, some of which have the benefit of a Riverside view, will be available for pre and post-match entertainment. Eleven Corporate Hospitality Lounges are included in the design, allowing visitors to savour the excitement and atmosphere of first class football in first class surroundings. Quality media facilities will be a sharp contrast to what is currently on offer, and the Stadium will be competing with the best in the world in terms of new technology.

On non-match days, the Riverwalk will be opened up entirely, enabling the public to walk from Putney Bridge to Hammersmith for the first time in the history of this particular stretch of the river. The Stadium will also boast a Riverside restaurant and caf? from which the Thames can be viewed in a tranquil setting.
