ACCRINGTON Stanley hope to have their extra 800 seats in place by the beginning of April.
Work has begun on the Whinney Hill Terrace and the Clayton End where the Reds have to add the seats, bought from St Mirren, to comply with Football League regulations by May 1.
Within three years of being in the Football League, clubs have to have 2000 seats in place. The Reds have 1200 at the moment.
"The plans were passed by the Football League last week," said chief executive Rob Heys.
"We needed them to pass them and check that they met their requirements and that we could meet the time-scale.
"They have all gone through and work has started laying the concrete. Thankfully all the work is under cover so we are not at the mercy of the weather.
"It has cost the club around £40-50,000 which has all come out of the club funds.
"It is a financial burden at the moment but we have to had to deal with it and, as it means stopping in the Football League, it is not an option not to do it."
Meanwhile the cut-price season tickets - revealed last week - are selling well.
An adult season ticket will cost £150 for seating, £140 for standing while concessions are £110 and £100 and students and Under 16s are £50 before April 4.
"So far we have sold about 50 which we are pleased with and it has been well received," said the Chief Executive.
"They still have a month to buy the tickets so we are hopeful of surpassing last season’s total of 426."
