Stadium Name:Mennaye Field
Formerly known as Penzance & Newlyn Pirates, the Cornish Pirates play their home games at their traditional home at Mennaye Field in Penzance.
There has been much talk of plans to build a permanent 15,000- seat stadium which will be fit to host Premiership rugby, but the club is still considering its options, particularly as the minimum entry requirements to the Premiership are in a state of flux.
The club developed a business plan with Cornwall Council to build a stadium which could host both the Pirates and Truro City Football Club, but the Council refused any public funding
The long-running saga over a new stadium for Cornish Pirates is set to drag on even further.
The clubs’ hopes were dashed when Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee meeting to consider a retail development which would largely fund the £10million was postponed at short notice.
The 6,000 capacity stadium – with the option to extend to the 10,000 necessary to satisfy Premiership rugby criteria for a place in the top flight – planned for Threemilestone near Truro, is crucial to any hopes Pirates have of playing Premiership rugby in the foreseeable future.
