Dundalk Sporting Director Jim Magilton said: "The establishment of this Stadium and Facilities Redevelopment Group is a crucial first step in the development of a stadium befitting this club and town.
"The support of fans and townspeople will be crucial to driving this project forward.
"We all want a stadium and supporting facility that the club, locals and fans – both old and new – can be proud of.
"We all want a stadium that is accessible for all fans, with facilities that enrich the local community.
"We all want a stadium and facilities that are welcoming for opposition fans, at least off the pitch.
"We will strive, as a group, to make this happen. I’d like to thank Paddy Casey and Aaron Lawless for their tireless work in pulling together what is a fantastic working group. We can’t wait to get started."
