Saracens rugby club have said they plan to further redevelop their new North London home, Allianz Park. At the official opening of the stadium's conference and events facilities Ed Griffiths, chief executive at the Aviva Premiership's current leading club, confirmed they will look to add another new stand as soon as the success of the existing facilities can be judged, with planning permission likely to be sought next year.

The 10,000-capacity arena – built on the site of the former Barnet Copthall athletics stadium – opened as the nomadic club's new permanent home on 24 March. Allianz Park are actively targeting the conference and events market, with its state-of-the-art east stand boasting a number of versatile spaces, ranging from hospitality boxes for eight up to the Ground Floor Arena, which has a maximum capacity of 2,000 for a reception. The club confirmed a number of corporate bookings are already secured for 2013.

The development is built in an existing 'green zone' area and the club has embraced the message with a number of eco-friendly initiatives, claiming to have 'the most sustainable and energy efficient stadium in the UK'.
