THE future of the Keepmoat Stadium will be decided by councillors today.

Doncaster Council’s Cabinet are expected to hand over the management of the Keepmoat Stadium to Doncaster Rovers Football Club on a 99-year arrangement in a bid to stop losses of up to £350,000 a year to tax payers.

Under the proposed arrangement, Rovers would pay £100,000 per year to the council to take over the running of the stadium from the Stadium Management Team, who only have enough money to run for another six weeks.

The plans will go before the cabinet at 10am at the Mansion House.
