Bournemouth football club have decided to sell off their ground to help pay off some of their £6.5m debts.
Dean Court football stadium will now be leased by the club
The decision was taken at a meeting of shareholders and fans at the Dean Court ground on Friday night.
It took two votes to reach a consensus on the deal to sell off the stadium to a property company for £3.5m and lease it back.
The club were facing a deadline of the end of the month to pay a tax bill of £500,000.
The Cherries hope that a supporters' pension scheme set up by Dave Stone, a director of both the club and the supporters trust, could buy back the stadium from the new owner in the spring.
