CPD Y Rhyl 1879 is seeking investment as it looks to secure Belle Vue for the town of Rhyl and its community.
The management committee of the new phoenix club, supported by Rhyl Fans Association, announced yesterday they have appointed consultants Just Solutions to undertake a feasibility study which will explore the opportunities and options for acquiring Belle Vue as well as informing the emerging business case for future investment.
Just Solutions have extensive experience in developing and improving the football infrastructure throughout Wales at local, regional and national levels.
CPD Y Rhyl 1879 has an exclusive option from landlord David Butters to buy Belle Vue stadium for £450,000, based on its commercial valuation.
Since 1901, Belle Vue had been the home of Rhyl FC until the famous club disbanded earlier this year.
Successor CPD Y Rhyl 1879’s new management committee’s intention to ensure it remains so to ensure it is also developed for the benefit of the community serving broader interests than just football.
The club believes that the stadium is an important asset for the town, region and sport and will work with all potential partners to secure an exciting future for Belle Vue.
Local politicians such as Ann Jones AM, James Davies MP, Councillors Barry Mellor and Christopher Ruane have also provided advice and guidance during the recent transition and are very supportive of the club’s endeavours to acquire Belle Vue.
Club chairman Tom Jamieson said: “This is a unique opportunity for the football club and the town to secure the benefit of Belle Vue for the community.
“The feasibility study is an important next step to explore all potential options open to the club. But we also wish it to be known that we welcome any investor or partnership enquiries.
“The history of footballing success in Rhyl has always been significant and the potential support base is as good, if not stronger, than any club in the Welsh system.
“With the right partners, the commercial opportunities that could follow ground development and footballing success are significant and hugely exciting.
“We are determined to do all in our power to enable Belle Vue to thrive once again and CPD Y Rhyl 1879 to make its way back to Cymru Premier, the top tier of Welsh football.”
