    Meadowbank as a sports venue

    Seeing footage of the new stadium it says thereís now a 499 person stand that is effectively a few rows of seats where the old main stand used to be. Does anyone know if there are any plans to put more seating in? Or are we no longer going to be able to host major athletics events any more?

    Edinburgh is poorly served for indoor music venues of any size meaning gigs generally go to Glasgow where 2014 meant there was huge investment through there. Is sport, bar rugger, heading the same way?

    FC Edinburgh are planning to build another small stand and terracing opposite the current stand. It will add 1500 to the capacity

    I think thereís doubt about that going ahead due to plans for house building.

    I was there on Saturday for Leith Athletic v Edinburgh United. If you sit in the front row your view is obscured by a barrier, though I believe thereís plans to reduce its height. Itís completely soulless, the seats are too far from the pitch and when it rains youíll get soaked. If Edinburgh City arenít able to increase the capacity I canít see how theyíll grow their support sufficiently to progress up the divisions.
