Lord's set for 20m redevelopment
Lord's
Lord's has undergone plenty of changes in the last 20 years
Plans have been unveiled to redevelop the Mound Stand at Lord's and add state-of-the-art scoreboards and TV screens at a cost of more than 20m.

The MCC, which owns Lord's, aims to raise the money by launching a debenture scheme for spectators.

Owners of debentures will have the chance to buy tickets for games at the famous old ground from 2007-2014.

The scheme covers seats in the Grand and Mound Stands, and debentures will be priced between 8,000 and 12,000.

More than 50m has been spent on refurbishing the famous London venue since 1987, including the addition of a new media centre and indoor cricket school.

The latest plans will take spending on the ground to more than 75m.

The MCC aims to have the scoreboards and screens in place for the 2008 season and hopes work on the Mound Stand will be completed ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games, when Lord's will host the archery competition.

Meanwhile, the club says it is continuing to look into ways of expanding the capacity at the ground.
