The Welsh side finally achieved promotion to the EFL last season, winning the National League in style ahead of Notts County.

They are enjoying life in League Two so far, winning four of their eight matches to sit fourth in the table.

However, Wrexham have delivered some bad news to supporters regarding the extension to their stadium.

The Racecourse Ground is set to welcome a new Kop stand boasting 5,500 seats.

It will take the stadium’s capacity to 16,000 as Reynolds and McElhenney plot Wrexham’s route to League One.

The duo had promised it would be ready for the start of the 2024/25 season.

However, Wrexham have now released a statement admitting the Kop stand is still a work in progress.

Indeed, a date to start construction has still not been agreed.


And the rebuilt stand will not be completed in time for next season.

A statement read: “The new Kop will not be open for the start of the 2024/25 season with a projected build period of 12 months from commencement on site. 

“There is no date for starting on site, as several matters need to be resolved before that can be confirmed.

“To enable a contract to build the Kop to be signed, the grant funding agreement from Wrexham County Borough Council needs to be finalised and the Club satisfied that the conditions attached to the funding offer can be fulfilled. 

“It is hoped that these negotiations will be completed before the end of October 2023.”
