City Of Manchester Stadium May Dwarf Old Trafford

City Of Manchester Stadium May Dwarf Old Trafford

Several weeks ago we at Vital Manchester City reported on the proposals put forward by the club about the possibility of regenerating land around SportCity but what we didn't mention was an 80,000 capacity City stadium.

The Sunday Mirror published an article whereby the tabloid states Blues owner Sheikh Mansour has already promised to build one of the best teams in world football and in doing so he wants a stadium to compliment the team.



The Mirror said...

One of the plans being discussed is to add another tier and 30,000 seats to take the capacity of the City of Manchester Stadium to almost 80,000. City's bitter rivals Manchester United currently have the biggest ground in the Premier League, with Old Trafford able to hold 75,769.

Feasibility studies are being conducted to formulate how Eastlands' 47,726 capacity can be increased.


Filling 80,000 seats week in week out is going to be a tall order but I suppose with the demise of the red half of Manchester virtually certain once Sir Alex retires I can only envisage several thousand rags defecting to the only real team in Manchester.

80,000? Liverpool couldnt fill that every week let alone City. Your stadiums great as it is, an increase would be a bad thing for you i think.

Nice to see your 60000 capacity gaffe full for the Wolves match at the weekend there nikolaijns (erm, quite a long way from full in truth). What's the matter, the city bankers not get their bonuses until the end of the month? Or are they looking for another club to support after your humbling by Barca the other night?

HY - aren't Tottenham planning a 60000 capacity stadium in the next few seasons? Large gate receipts make you large profits, so even if (like the arsenal) you sometimes can't fill the ground, itt proves a winner in the long run.

60,000 is ok, but 80,000 is excessive

80,000 would make it a stadium that could host champions league finals etc. We might not fill it immediately, but what a status symbol to have! it would be massively intimidating to other clubs. To be big, you have to think big.
