Doncaster buys Keepmoat rights

Doncaster Rovers will pay £100,000 per season to the  town's council to secure a 99 year lease over the stadium and training ground at Cantley Park which will see the club take over the running both venues.

"It is well known that the stadium is losing money and the cabinet's decision seeks to provide a long-term financial solution which will secure the futures of the town's key sports clubs at the Keepmoat," the Mayor of Doncaster said in an official statement.

"Doncaster Council should be concentrating on its core business and quite frankly running a stadium is not what the council should be doing or has the skills and expertise to do well.

"It is unfortunate that we need to pick up the pieces of poor decision making in the past, but we have to find an appropriate solution so we can move on."
