Man City get go-ahead to extend Etihad Stadium

Thursday 13 February 2014

Manchester City will convert the Etihad Stadium into a venue of more than 60,000 seats after the Premier League club was given the green light by the city council, Sky Sports has reported.


Man City’s Etihad Stadium


City proposed increasing the capacity of their ground by 14,500 seats, which includes 6,250 extra seats behind each goal and another 2,000 pitchside.


The proposals were made in the summer and formally submitted in November and have now been approved. No timescale has yet been put on the redevelopment.


When completed, the Etihad Stadium will become the second-biggest club ground in England, behind only Manchester United’s Old Trafford, which can hold 75,811 supporters.


City have recently spent £200m on the City Football Academy, next to the Etihad Stadium. The complex will open later in 2014 and will house every level of the City team, as well as provide medical facilities.


The former champions moved to the Etihad, previously known as Eastlands and the City of Manchester Stadium for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, in 2003. Previously City played at Maine Road, their home since 1923 which, at the time it closed, had a capacity of just over 35,000.
