Morecambe announce name of new stadium

Morecambe have named their new £12-million multipurpose stadium development the Globe Arena, which is set to be completed in July this year. The announcement comes after the club secured a five-year sponsorship deal with Globe Construction, the company responsible for building the new venue in the Westgate area of the town.

The Shrimps, who have also revealed a new club crest, will move from Christie Park to their new ground from next season.

Chairman Peter McGuigan said: "We are delighted to announce that our new development will be named the Globe Arena. It is a historic day for both Morecambe Football Club and Globe Construction and the beginning of what we believe will be a very successful partnership between us.

"The new development, when completed, will offer not only a fantastic stadium worthy of our status as a Football League club but also act as a high-quality sporting and social venue for the local community.

"Additionally, we hope to attract the business community from both a local and national base to our outstanding conference facilities. We are an ambitious football club and the opening of the Globe Arena in July this year will give us the financial stability necessary to ensure the long-term well-being of Morecambe Football Club."
