We are thrilled to announce the next phase of our groundbreaking project to create a new home for Oxford United and a fantastic new community destination for the people of Oxfordshire.
Our vision is to create a sustainable sports, entertainment and lifestyle landmark in Oxfordshire which is locally loved and internationally recognised.
With our current agreement with the Kassam Stadium coming to an end in 2026 and no hope of renewing the lease, the only alternative is to find a new home. There is an urgent need to develop a new stadium in order to protect the future existence of this Oxfordshire institution.
The club is now in a race against time to open a new stadium by the summer of 2026. If we can’t open by the start of the 2026 season, we will be homeless. Playing out of the county is something none of us want, even for a short while and we can’t contemplate a long-term move away, as it would mean a loss of our name, identity, and heritage.
Public Exhibition Event - THANKYOU
A huge thankyou to everyone who came to the exhibition and submitted feedback about our plans. We are currently processing the huge number of responses we received both at the exhibitions and online.
Although the exhibition has ended, you can still see the plans by visiting the consultation link here
Who we are
Oxford United Football Club, with a proud history dating back to 1893, is comprises the EFL League One Men’s Team, the National League Southern Division Women’s Team, and Academy. Our charitable arm, Oxford United in the Community, undertakes a huge amount of positive work throughout the city and county.
In 2001, we moved to The Kassam Stadium. Oxford United’s current home is unsustainable in a number of ways and remote from public transport. With the current agreement for The Kassam Stadium coming to an end in 2026, there is an urgent need to develop a new stadium in order to protect the future existence of one of the oldest football clubs in the UK.
