BBC Sport – Glasgow City plan UK’s first purpose-built women’s stadium

Glasgow City Foundation’s Douglas Barnett said: “This will be the first purpose-built women’s football facility in the UK – promoting the sport to new generations of girls and women.”

The foundation, the charitable element of Glasgow City Football Club, and East Dumbartonshire Council are entering into a formal agreement to explore the development of a joint sport and community well-being facility.

Council leader Rhondda Geekie said: “This agreement follows recent engagement with the local community to determine whether there was interest in working with Glasgow City Foundation to explore the potential for a sporting facility alongside our place approach and the new community facilities we are planning for this area.

“Through both the information session we held in May and the online survey we hosted on the council website, there was overwhelming support for the development of this proposal from those who took part.”
