Plans have been revealed to build a new 12,000 all seater stadium on the site of the doomed Xanadu development in the Pennington area of Leigh and will be shared with Leigh RMI FC.

The stadium will incorperate new facilities for Leigh East ARLFC and a smaller neighbouring athletics stadium for Leigh Harriers Athletics Club and also facilities for Leigh & Wigan College, who will fund the project in part.

It would be a community stadium venture, similar to the ones in operation at Super League clubs Widnes Vikings and Hull FC.

The plan would cost around 20million and will be financed by private investment, the Goverment, Wigan & Leigh College and various other sources.

It is hoped the whole project, which is titled "Leigh Sports Village" or "LSV" will be completed by 2005.
