Northern League Division One side Bishop Auckland FC is set to move to its new ground after an eight year wait.
The new stadium, one of County Durham’s biggest regeneration projects, has been named Heritage Park due to its closeness to the original heritage line. The stadium is part of a leisure complex being built on the former Warner Electric’s site which includes a Sainsburys supermarket.
As well as a new stadium the club is set to launch its new site, bishopafc.com, which will sell tickets as well as merchandise.
Commercial manager Kim Fryer said: “This area was all about mining and most of the footballers in the past worked down the pits.”
“We have two artists working to create the Bishop Auckland story through the corridors and stand, which will include memorabilia, but it won’t be in the usual way of trophies in cabinets.
“Of course we want to remember this club’s proud heritage, but also look forward to a successful future.”
