Following talks late last year and a broad commitment from owner Firoz Kassam, negotiations continue about a handover of Kassam Stadium to the supporters’ trust OxVox. City Council leader Bob Price told the Oxford Mail:
It’s quite unique and there are quite significant issues in terms of liabilities of the trustees should they take over the ownership both short-term and long-term, as well as the relationship with the club.
The heads of terms we need to be drawn up are quite complex which is why we need advice on it.
OxVox, Kassam and Oxford City Council have been in negotiations over the 12,500-capacity stadium since October.
Owner of National League side Eastleigh Stewart Donald has joined the committee of OxVox and will be involved in the next meeting of the parties.
