Manchester City have submitted a planning application for a £300m expansion of Etihad Stadium. The club want to increase the current capacity of 53,400 to 60,000 by expanding the North Stand.

Proposals include a sky bar overlooking the pitch and a stadium roof walk experience. A 3,000-capacity fan zone, new club shop and museum, and 400-bed hotel have also been proposed in the application to Manchester City Council. The club say the project, which would take three years to complete, would create a “best-in-class fan experience and year-round entertainment and leisure destination”. The planning application follows a consultation with fans and the local community. City say the proposals represent more than £300m investment into east Manchester, and could create 2,600 jobs, with priority for people from Greater Manchester. There are also plans for new office spaces for businesses that want to work in collaboration with the club and their partners.
