Phases

The planning application will seek approval for the expansion of both the South and the North Stands.


In the event of planning permission being granted, it is the Club’s current intention to first proceed with the development of the South Stand.  However, the extension of the North Stand either at the same time or as a separate phase of work at a later time remains a possibility.

Phase 1: South Stand

The expanded stand would mean:

  • A total of 6,750 additional seats with ticket prices to cater for all budgets
  • The scope to relocate visiting supporters
  • Up to 2,400 premium seats located in the southern end of the Colin Bell and East Stand Level 2 with an enhanced concourse and access to a private bar
  • An extension of the Legends lounge hospitality facility from 230 to circa 500 places


Phase 2: North Stand 

The expanded stand would mean:

  • A total of 6,750 additional seats with ticket prices to cater for all budgets
  • Up to a further 2,400 premium seats located in the northern end of the Colin Bell and East Stand Level 2 with an enhanced concourse and access to a private bar


Etihad

Expanding the South Stand alone will increase matchday seating capacity to around 54,500.

If both the South and North Stands are expanded, matchday seating capacity would rise to around 61,000.

A study is also underway to establish the feasibility of bringing seats closer to the pitch, which could result in the inclusion of additional rows of seating .

Depending on the outcome of the feasibility study we may seek to include the additional rows of seating within our planning application . The impact of any additional seats closer to the pitch would likely be minimal given that they would be accommodated within the existing stadium footprint. Depending on the outcome of the feasibility study, any further work required to assess the impact, including how these could be accommodated within the transport strategy, would be submitted with the planning application

The final number of seats which we will apply for, and whether this will include any new seats closer to the pitch, will be confirmed within the planning application.
