City Build Bigger Than St James' Park

Manchester City have made public their proposals to increase capacity at the Etihad Stadium to 60,000, to beatb the capacity at St James' Park.

The club have opened an exhibition at the stadium, which currently holds around 47,500, to seek further the views of fans, residents and other stakeholders in the latest stage of an already comprehensive consultation process.

City intend to make a formal application for planning permission in December and, if it goes ahead, the work would make the stadium the third largest in the Premier League.

Two options for stadium redevelopment are being considered, with the most likely being that work to the South Stand is first undertaken to initially take capacity to 54,000. Following completion the North Stand would then be extended.

The second option is to press ahead with expansion on both sides of the ground concurrently.

City state that the work would allow them to introduce a new season card priced at £299 and improve hospitality offerings.
