Gloucester Rugby Club has deferred the development of the new Grandstand until next summer.
The Kingsholm club had planned to redevelop the current stand into a 7,000 plus seated structure with conference, bar and shop facilities over the summer.
The timescale was always going to be tight between the end of the season and the start of the new campaign in September, but a decision was made in April to go ahead this summer, in time for the start of the 2005/06 season.
However, the culmination of a number of issues has caused the Club to defer the development and construction work until next summer.
The Club's managing director Ken Nottage said: "The decision has been taken to defer the development for a year. The culmination of technical issues threaten the timing to complete
the project ahead of next season."
Nottage insisted that the project will happen, "The project has not been cancelled. It will happen, but we need to evaluate a number of major issues like flooding and we cannot run the risk of it not being ready in time. It will be deferred for a year and will happen.
"This decision enables us to concentrate all our efforts on team performance for the new season."
Season ticket packages for the current Kingsholm stadium will be with supporters in the next 10 to 14 days.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
