Manchester City have revealed plans to expand the Etihad stadium.

The Daily Mail reports City have revealed ambitious plans to expand the capacity of the Etihad Stadium to 61,500.

Both ends of the stadium, owned by Manchester council, would be lifted to accommodate an extra tier and 13,500 seats.

The scheme would make the Etihad the third-largest venue in domestic football in Britain and City plan to apply for planning permission next month.

City are offering their 36,000 season card holders the opportunity to buy up to four more season cards.

Members of the club's Blue scheme will also be invited to apply.
