Although I didn't see 18k as upgradeable. But 10k, after each phase is completed.
1st Phase - is making the supporters section a permanent grandstand and adding more seating to that area of the stadium which could add about another 2,000 seats.
That would bring total capacity to about 6,000 (Expected to take place following this season)
2nd Phase - is wrapping corners of stadium with more seating near the East End. This could add about another 1,000. (Based upon demand)
3rd Phase would involve a second tier of seating over the current grandstand
. This would require substantial coordination with the city because it would require building over a nearby roadway. This
could bring stadium theoretically to slightly over 10,000
(Based upon demand)
