Milton Keynes stadium is on track

Milton Keynes Dons insist their new ground is on track to open in July 2007 with an initial capacity of 22,000.

That figure is set to rise to 32,000 in "12 to 18 months' time", according to chairman Pete Winkelman.

The new stadium will also be one of just five stadia in England to meet Uefa's four-star requirement.

"We are the first stadium in the country to meet the 2005 act for 360 degrees visibility for disabled spectators," Winkelman said.

The stadium, in the Denbigh area of Milton Keynes, has been under construction since February 2005.

The Dons have played at the National Hockey Stadium since September 2003, and changed their name from Wimbledon in June 2004.
