Wasps discuss Wycombe future
WASPS chairman Mark Rigby has revealed how long he expects the club to remain at Adams Park.
Following the take-over last Friday, Wasps said that developing a new stadium is a priority but that they'd remain at Adams Park for the 'forseeable future'.
Rigby said: “It will certainly be a minimum of two seasons, potentially a minimum of three seasons.
“Running off on day one and trying to find a stadium deal would be an insult to the creditors. They've supported us through this very difficult trading period believing that the deal would get across the line and they would then get paid.
“We've got to deal with that first and build trust back in the business and establish business integrity before thinking about multi-million pound stadium deals.
“Frankly, if I was a creditor I'd be insulted if that was the first pronouncement after new ownership. I'd say, 'sort my bill out first, please'.
“We've got to rebuild relationships with a raft of creditors, people that were owed money during this summer period. “It's been a struggle with the financial tap being turned off at the end of last season. The club owe them a huge debt of thanks for being patient. HMRC have been extraordinarily patient.”
