Haven't seen this on SC anywhere yet... thoughts?

Standard Sport revealed in April that Wembley, as well as the Olympic Stadium and stadiummk, the home of Milton Keynes Dons, were under consideration. It is now thought Ipswich’s Portman Road ground and The Amex, home of Brighton, are on the list of possibilities although these plans are at an early stage.
Bit of a hike. Sounds unlikely to me.

I was told last year from a member of MK Dons management team that it was "done deal" that we will play there for a season, with bigger games played elsewhere.

I have a feeling that it's nonsense, at worse it's a plant to lean on the FA to moving on the price for Wembley

If they're doing requests, Willesden Sports Centre is only round the corner from me. It's a plastic pitch but I could pop into the steam room after.

I think its PL regulations that we have to play all our home matches in one location, so could imagine us playing say EL and domesti cup games at another stadium but not splitting the home PL games between locations.

Of the 3, Ipswich is by far the best for me as I live in Norwich. The others would be a total nightmare - in fact, Brighton would result in me having to give up my season ticket for the time we were there.

Not sure how true it all is but bugger getting back through the tunnel from Brighton, Ipswich wins hands down for me.
Personally I still think the obvious choices are either to share with West Ham or Share with Arsenal, They shared ours during the war after all. Mind you it's probably them that oblect come to think of it.

The article says ST holders can have a sabbatical for that season
