Strategy review for all Greyhound Stadia, including Newbridge, on the way

The Irish Greyhound Board has announced that a comprehensive, strategic review into the future needs of its 16 licensed stadia to determine the industry footprint of the future is to take place, the review includes Newbridge Stadium.

The review is an integral part of the IGB’s Strategic Plan 2018-2022, which was published earlier this year. It will include an assessment of stadium infrastructure and financial sustainability.

The intention is to have the report completed by the end of March 2019, with a procurement process to appoint consultants to begin immediately.

The review is timely, arising from the ongoing significant changes that have taken place in the industry generally.

CEO of the Irish Greyhound Board, Gerard Dollard, commented: "Stadia will be assessed in several different areas, including finance, population catchment and other competing sporting facilities near each stadium. The greyhound industry has had to change and adapt in a number of different ways in recent years. This review, which is a big step forward in the implementation of the IGB’s five year strategic plan, will progress the industry’s footprint for the future.

He added: "It is important to note that this will be an independent review, which will be tasked with making recommendations for the future of the Irish greyhound industry as a whole. Stakeholders within the industry will also be consulted, which is hugely important."
