Wraps come off Manchester Etihad stadium expansion plan

Should a planning application be submitted and successfully approved, the construction programme would take place over a three-year period, with works staged to minimise disruption during the football season.

Under the designs, several connected all-weather facilities will be fully integrated into the stadium. These are centred around an expanded North Stand with one larger, single upper tier above the existing lower tier, increasing stadium capacity to over 60,000.

Adjacent to the back of the raised strand, will be a covered City Square fan zone, with a capacity of 3,000. This will be flanked with two buildings providing a new club shop, museum and hotel.


Concept design for the expanded North Stand at the Etihad

Since 2008, City Football Group has overseen over £700m of investment into the Etihad Campus and East Manchester.
