At 9am on Thursday morning the Stadium Future consultation space opened to provide information on the updated proposals for expansion of the Etihad Stadium.
One topic likely to garner much of the attention is the subject of where away fans should be located, should our plans receive approval.
We’ve been in extensive consultation with supporters over the summer on this subject, because, in the event of an expansion, it is likely that we would have to review their location.
Visiting fans currently occupy up to about half of the current South Stand on levels one and two.
The Club have reviewed a number of options and taken in to consideration supporter feedback on each of them.
The favoured option at this stage is to relocate them to levels one, two and three of an expanded south stand, subject to approval on the stadium development plans.
You can see what this would look like below.
If you would like to learn more about the proposals please visit our dedicated exhibition, located in the BT City Square at the Etihad Stadium where you can make your views known.
The exhibition will run from Thursday 17 October 2013, until after the planning application is submitted.
The exhibition will be open from 11am-5pm every day from 17-31 October and opening times after this date will be detailed here on our website.
Manchester City Football Club very much welcome your views on the proposals and encourage you to make your comments by completing a comments card in person at the exhibition.
All comments should be received by 15 November 2013.
We look forward to hearing your views on this exciting plan for the Etihad Stadium.
