New Bridgend Stadium is a proposed stadium in Bridgend, Wales. It would be a 15,000 seater multi-sports stadium.[1][2][3]

While the driving force behind the proposal are the Crusaders, their Chief Executive David Thompson indicated the stadium would be used for several sports saying "We hope to go into partnership with Bridgend Ravens, Bridgend County Borough Council, maybe Bridgend Football Club and anyone else who wants to be involved in this project".[4][5]

It was boosted by the promotion of the Crusaders into the Super League in 2008.

Two "rival" schemes to provide the stadium have emerged in previous months.

The first is a "sports village" at Island Farm[6] by local company HD Limited. It will provide a 15000-seater stadium for Crusaders, and smaller stadia for Bridgend Ravens and Bridgend Town. In addition to this, parkland, an extension to Bridgend Science Park, an indoor sports/training centre, a specialist tennis centre and facilities for other sports such as boxing will be provided. An outline application was lodged with Bridgend County Borough Council in September 2009 [1].

The second scheme is at a brownfield site to the north east of the town centre at Brackla.[7] It is being developed by Wigan-based developers Greenbank Partnerships, who developed Leigh Sports Village and Olympian Homes. Their scheme includes a stadium, hotel, leisure facilities and retail outlets. They hope to regenerate areas of the town centre also. [2].
