MAN CITY UNVEIL EXPANSION PLANS

A planned redevelopment of the Etihad Stadium has been unveiled by Manchester City.

The ambitious project could see both ends of the stadium lifted to accommodate an extra tier, increasing the capacity by 13,500 seats, to 61,500.

A club spokesperson said: "Over the last three months, the club has undertaken an extensive first phase public consultation seeking the views of fans, local residents and other stakeholders.

"Visitors have been able to drop-in to a permanent exhibition space at the Etihad Stadium, enabling people to ask questions, fill out questionnaires and make recommendations.

"The exhibition is being updated and will re-open on 17th October to provide further information on the planning application."

Work could begin in February 2014.
