WREXHAM FC is considering six sites on which a new club stadium could be built.
The revelations come as club supporters prepare to unveil a rescue plan during tonight's public meeting which they claim could keep Wrexham at the Racecourse.
But club chairman Alex Hamilton has drawn up a shortlist of locations for the new stadium he insists will ensure the Dragons' survival amid mounting debts.
* Farmland opposite Wrexham's training ground, at Stansty Park, which is used by Cymru Alliance side Lex XI. The site has been used in the past as a temporary base for a travelling circus and is less than half a mile from the Racecourse.
* An area of land adjacent to the A534 junction off the Wrexham by-pass between the Llanypwll link road and the old Chester road towards Gresford.
* The Bryn Estyn Lane site occupied by Wrexham Rugby Club. Such a move could offer ground-sharing possibilities and an opportunity for the local authority to advance its proposals for a new, improved road access to the town's industrial estate.
* The site of the former Brymbo Steelworks plant which is currently being levelled and decontaminated.
* The industrial wasteland at the Rhostyllen junction of the Wrexham by-pass currently dominated by the Bersham Colliery waste-heap.
* Another less likely option is land adjacent to the A525 Wrexham-Ruthin road, just beyond the former Lego building.
Fans have not ruled out the remote possibility Mr Hamilton will attend tonight's public meeting, organised by Wrexham Supporters' Trust.
WST is spearheading a campaign against Mr Hamilton's proposals to relocate the Dragons to a new, smaller stadium.
Mr Hamilton plans to pay off the club's debts with some of the profits from the sale of the Racecourse site for commercial development.
WST secretary Simon Johnson said it was vital concerned supporters attended the meeting at the Miners' Institute, Grosvenor Road, which begins at 7.30pm.
"The trust believes the future of the club hangs in the balance," he said.
"Therefore, it is vital that fans demonstrate how important Wrexham Football Club is to the community. At the present time, Mr (John) Reames (managing director) is stating that there is no alternative to moving from the Racecourse.
"We will challenge that assumption and show Wrexham fans that there is a sound case for staying put and developing around the existing stadium," said Mr Johnson..
"The sell-out crowd of 15,000 and reported match receipts of £200,000 at the Liverpool match on Wednesday (of last week) surely demonstrates the value of the Racecourse for both Wrexham and North Wales.
"The council is meeting with owners of the club on Wednesday and it is absolutely essential that we send out a clear message to our elected representatives," he said..
"Wrexham needs a football club and it needs the Racecourse."
WST representatives will tell fans there is space behind the Kop end of the ground for a block of residential luxury apartments and a new 4,000-seat stand for the club.
They believe the sale of the apartments would make a big dent in the club's debts and provide the springboard for the trust to buy the club from Mr Hamilton.
Despite the fans' determination to save the Racecourse, Wrexham's debts continue to mount.
Losses in the region of £500,000 during the past season mean the club is now more than £3m in the red.
MD John Reames is confident the Dragons are on course to break even or even turn a small profit in the current financial year, which ends next May.
The financial millstone has frightened off locally-based businessmen from asking Mr Hamilton to name his price and walk away from from the club.
But the potential investors recognise the overwhelming economic argument for the sale of the Race-course and would be willing to step in and take control of a debt-free Wrexham housed in a new, purpose-built home.
Tonight's supporters' meeting comes 48 hours before Mr Hamilton meets Wrexham council officers to put forward the case for relocation.
The sale of the Racecourse site would bring in a minimum of £13m and his proposals involve the construction of an 11,000-capacity stadium built at a cost of around £9m.
