Capacity of KC Stadium ‘to be reduced’

THE capacity of Hull City’s KC Stadium may be reduced for the club’s upcoming second Premier League season, chairman Paul Duffen has today confirmed.

Up to 300 seats may need to be removed from the council-owned superstadium after the Tigers agreed a £5million fee with Fulham for striker Bobby Zamora.

Speaking from his yacht in the south of France, Duffen said: “Stadium manager John Cooper has met with Hull City Council and Humberside Police to discuss the signing of Bobby.

“They have told him that, should the deal go through, Row Z in the North and South Stands will no longer be safe for fans to sit on for health and safety reasons.

“However, farmers near our Cottingham training ground can continue to sleep easy, knowing their barn doors will remain undamaged by our footballs and their cows’ arses will not be troubled by banjos.”

If Zamora does sign for the club, Duffen has reassured fans with season tickets in the affected areas they will be placed in a draw for the chance to win a ticket for elsewhere in the ground.

Speaking from his spray tan booth, Hull City manager Phil Brown said: “You know me, I never comment on any signings until the deal is signed, sealed and delivered.”

  2. Yeah, bizarrely, Phil Brown celebrated his 50th birthday by motorcycling from Hull to the South of France to spend some time with Duffen on his yacht.
