STACK are delighted to announce that a planning application for a new fan zone adjacent to St. James’ Park has been formally approved by local authorities.
‘St. James’ STACK, powered by Sela’ will be a thriving food, drink and entertainment option for those attending matches and events at the stadium, as well as a bustling midweek leisure and social destination.
It will be built using repurposed shipping containers around a central plaza and main stage area and is expected to open in Spring 2024, with an initial lifespan of three years as the club explores potential uses for the site.
The fan zone will attract people of all ages, with carefully curated events and attractions designed for families. The main stage, complete with a big screen, will be designed to deliver an immersive experience for live entertainment and broadcasting sporting events, while there will be six bars and ten street food units.
It will be supported by the club’s front-of-shirt partner, Sela - a pioneering destination and experiences organisation.
