Saracens Rugby Club has revised plans to revamp Barnet Copthall Stadium in St Albans, UK, at an expected cost of more than $16m.

The new stadium design, which has been submitted to Barnet Council, incorporates timber finishes, trees and greenery to soften the aesthetics of the new east stand.

The revised application includes a transport plan, which is expected to reduce the percentage of supporters travelling to watch games by car to 36%.

The stadium would be used for community sports, and club and elite athletics, with a maximum 16 days of Premiership rugby.
