Man City plan Etihad expansion

Manchester City plan to expand the Etihad.

The Sun says City are set to press ahead with plans to extend the Etihad next summer – making it the second largest club stadium in Britain.

City chiefs want to add an extra 7,000 seats to each end of the ground pushing capacity up to more than 61,000.

The club spent around £60m last year adding a third tier to the South Stand, increasing the Etihad to just under a 55,000 all-seater.

And City have been delighted with attendances so far this season – with Premier League matches 98 per cent full.
