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.
Henry Purdy, a first half replacement for Charlie Sharples, was amongst the try scorers in the 64-19 victory over Aviron Bayonnais on Saturday evening and told GRTV that it was a professional performance, one the team are happy with.
Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
After the recent European exploits, it's more cup action for Gloucester this weekend, but it's of a domestic variety as the Cherry and Whites travel to Bath on Friday evening to resume their Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign.
