Dundee clubs get stadium boost

Dundee and Dundee Utd could share a stadium
Proposals to allow Dundee and Dundee United to build a new stadium in the city have come a step closer to fruition.

Outline planning for permission has been granted for the stadium, which is central to the Scottish-Irish bid to host Euro 2008.

A 30,000-seater stadium is planned for Caird Park and Euro 2008 project director John Henderson expressed his delight at the news from Dundee City Council.

"The stadium is an important part of our bid and I believe that this decision will clearly demonstrate our resolve to Uefa," he said.

"We are ahead of our main rivals in the quality of our existing stadia and in the planning of new stadia."

Aberdeen and Hibs also hope to be involved in the Euro 2008 bid if their stadia plans get the go-ahead.
