​Nottingham Forest secure City Ground future

Nottingham Forest have secured a new 250-year lease on the City Ground.

Forest will now have the option to redevelop the City Ground they have called home for many years.

Their current 50-year lease has now been extended, which allows them to move forward with redevelopment plans they had first laid out in February.

The Brian Clough and Bridgford stands will undergo an improvement, while there will be a new Peter Taylor Stand built as part of the project.

The club's chairman released a statement on their official website stating: "The club would like to thank all those connected in helping secure our long-term future at the City Ground.

"When we announced our plans for the redevelopment of the stadium, we recognised the importance to remain at our iconic home.

"We understand what it means not only to our supporters but also for the people of the city and we are now delighted to have secured our lease for a further 250 years."
