Five different "match experiences" will be provided in the redeveloped Páirc Uí Chaoimh, according to the Cork County Board's business plan for the stadium.

A bugbear of fans visiting the old stadium was the small seat size.

The plan promises "dramatically reduced queuing and more match viewing space per person".

Unsurprisingly, the greatest space will be afforded to spectators with the most expensive tickets. Premium level spectators will have a viewing space of 0.59 square metres per person.

The premium section will be eight rows deep and span the whole length of the South Stand. Major benefactors, donors and sponsors will be allocated seats in the centre line area, the plan states.

The next most expensive tickets will be general admission ones in the same stand, with viewing space measured at between 0.48 and 0.55 square metres.

Club allocated seating in the 9,500-capacity South Stand will be cheaper, but with the same quality of view.

Spectators in the 8,000-capacity North Stand will have 0.46 square metres of viewing space.

Fans buying terrace tickets can expect a match viewing space of 0.28 square metres.

While a corporate suite is not being built, the plan promises that "flexible configuration options" in the premium section will allow for private entertainment and meeting options.
