Manchester City Football Club has released proposals for the expansion of its stadium.
The public consultation suggests increasing the capacity of the Etihad Stadium’s south stand to 54,000 or expanding both the south and north stands simultaneously to take 60,000 people. The stadium can currently accommodate a crowd of 47,500.
The club’s preferred option is to start with development of the south stand, but it could extend the north stand either concurrently or subsequently.
This consultation runs between July and August and will be followed by a formal public consultation in the autumn. The club anticipates that it will submit a planning application to Manchester City Council in December.
