Wasps seek bigger ground

Wasps' success has increased their fan base
English and European champions Wasps are considering ways to boost the number of fans they can accommodate at their home matches.

Wasps are sharing Wycombe football team's 10,000-seat Causeway Stadium.

But Wasps owner Chris Wright said the club's options are to expand Wycombe's stadium, find a site to build a new stadium or return to Loftus Road.

Wright said: "We are working as hard as we can to find an answer to the problem before the end of the season."

He added: "Going back to Loftus Road has got to be a possibility.

"We have a long-term agreement to go back and it holds 19,000 people but there are other alternatives as well.

"There are a lot of attractions about playing at Wycombe. We are working with everyone at Wycombe to see if we can initially improve the stadium to get 12,500 in and Wycombe Council are being really supportive."
