English Premier league club, Manchester City, has submitted a planning application seeking to expand the capacity at its Etihad Stadium from 53,400 to 60,000.

Designed by architects Populous, the project would expand the existing North Stand with one larger, single upper tier above the existing lower tier.

Above the upper tier, a sky bar with views overlooking the pitch will be introduced, together with a stadium roof walk experience.

As well as increasing capacity, the proposals include several connected "all-weather facilities", fully integrated into the stadium.

These include a new, 3,000-capacity fan zone called "City Square", a wide variety of food and drink outlets, a new club shop, a museum and a 400-bedroom hotel.

There will also be workspace for use by start-up and medium-sized organisations looking to co-locate and collaborate with the club.

According to plans published by the club, the hotel and food and drink outlets are situated on the left flank of the development, with all other facilities contained within the right flank.

LED screens, approximately four stories in height, will feature at the end of each flank.

Danny Wilson, managing director of Manchester City Operations, said the club wants to transform Etihad Stadium into a year-round entertainment and leisure destination – and

expects the project to cost more than £300m and take up to three years to complete.

“Over several months we have been developing concepts and designs for a best-in-class fan experience and year-round entertainment and leisure destination at the Etihad Stadium and are delighted to have now submitted a planning application to Manchester City Council," Wilson said.

“As with all Club developments, ensuring our local community benefit is a key priority and we believe these proposals will deliver long-term economic and social opportunities, building on the regeneration work delivered in East Manchester by City Football Group since 2008.”
