Club want to sell their home since the days of WG Grace and replace it with an eco-friendly 20,000-seat stadium
Gloucestershire want to build the world’s “most environmentally sustainable” cricket ground and host one of the Hundred’s possible expansion teams by selling the Nevil Road site that has been their home since the days of WG Grace.
Speaking to the Guardian during a week of talks with the club’s members, Will Brown, the chief executive, has outlined the vision for a possible 20,000-seat venue that would break the reliance on central funding from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) that has seen the club post losses in recent seasons.
