Rotherham United dismisses stadium fears and confirms work has started

Rotherham United Football Club has refuted speculation there was a cash shortage to its new stadium and verified that work has started this week on the 12,000 seater stadium.

Last week Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council loaned the npower League Two side £5m towards the community stadium, but it was suggested in the Rotherham Advertiser that the Millers still faced a £2.3m shortfall.

But the club has moved to clarify the speculation in statement on its official site.    

The statement read:  "As a result of a recent article within the local press Rotherham United Football Club would like to assure supporters that, taking into account the grant funding that has been applied for, the £5m loan from the council completes the funding requirements for the new stadium.

"We are delighted to announce that, as everyone can see, work began on site this week and we are currently looking to have a webcam to be installed to allow supporters to monitor the new stadium's progress."
