Man City Plans To Increase Etihad Stadium Capacity With $76.5M Third Tier Expansion
Published May 17, 2013
RAISING THE ROOF: In London, Ian Herbert reported City's feasibility studies for ways of expanding its ground "have included an analysis of lifting off the roof and creating an entire new tier to boost capacity to over 70,000, hugely increasing match-day income." But a more organic type of development -- increasing the stadium bit by bit -- "is considered the best way to accommodate new capacity as the club's growth brings in more fans." The stand "will accommodate a substantial number of far lower priced tickets season tickets" costing less than £300 (INDEPENDENT, 5/16).
