That’s been the plan all along since ADUG took over the reigns at City and their ambitious plans for the future will take the blues one step closer to achieving the dream.
According to the Sunday Mirror, the blues are planning to add another tier to Eastlands which could take the capacity to 80,000, usurping United’s capacity of 76,000 which is currently the largest in the Premier League.
City are currently the third best supported team in the Premiership, behind United and Arsenal and there is a feeling that demand for tickets will increase once the blues are playing regularly in Europe.
Owner Sheikh Mansour set about making City one of the best teams in world football and these plans will give the blues a stadium to match their ambitions. The blues have already announced plans to build a new £50m training complex close to the ground and have entered a partnership with Manchester City Council and The New East Manchester Regeneration Agency that will see major redevelopment in the area.
