Warriors are determined to create the best development in club rugby across Europe with a multi-million pound facelift, which will also include work in the North East corner of the stadium.
Chairman Cecil Duckworth has promised fans the latest phase in the exciting Sixways revolution will put the Warriors at the top of the league in terms of facilities.
"The plan is for the new extended stand in place for the beginning of next season," said Mr Duckworth. "The new East Stand will house 6,000 Warriors supporters and the noise and atmosphere will be electric. It will truly take our facilities a quantum leap forward.
"We are all very excited about the future with work off the field to improve facilities and work on it with new players like Chris Latham and Hal Luscombe joining us next season. We're very confident about the future of Worcester Warriors and this development is another big step forward for us."
The new East Stand will boast a state-of-the-art cantilever roof which means there will be no support pillars and no restricted views. The development will also include 120metres of new pitch side hospitality with corporate boxes, lounges and function rooms, balconies and bars, a mouth-watering pitch view restaurant and a new Business Club that will allow all of the West Midland businesses to network and socialise in the region's premier rugby hospitality. The stand will also grow to the increase the stadium capacity to 12,000.
The planned new development in the North East corner of the stadium will become the focal point of the entire complex with an expansive main reception, accessible ticket office and a spacious retailing opportunity on the ground floor.
General Manager Charlie Little added: "This development is essential to our continued development as a club and business and, alongside planning permission for the North Stand which we already have, it will allow us to grow the capacity at Sixways at the appropriate time to above 15,000.
"We are already developing the complex with improved infrastructure network off the M5, the addition of over 1,000 car parking spaces that includes Worcester's new Park and Ride facility, increased ground capacity and the proposed development of a health and racquet club. We are turning Sixways into a fantastic rugby stadium and conferencing facility that everybody connected with the city and Midlands should be proud of."
