Manchester City are in the ‘planning stages’ of building a new 21,000 capacity stadium worth over £30m, according to The Mail.
The stadium, which will be built next to the Etihad Stadium, has not yet been officially approved – but it has been reported that Manchester City Council are ‘behind the project’.
The brand new, state of the art arena is likely to host concerts, games for youth and women’s teams, NBA games and even UFC showdowns. According to the report by the Mail, construction is expected to take up to three years.
The Etihad Stadium itself was built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games at an eye-watering estimated cost of £110m. After the event, Manchester City moved in and converted the 55,000-seater into a full-time football stadium.
