Creating a year-round entertainment destination at the Etihad Campus

Manchester City is underway with developing a best-in-class fan experience and year-round entertainment and leisure destination at the Etihad Campus.

Below and over the following pages you can find out all the key information about the Club’s exciting plans.

What do our plans include?

We are expanding and enhancing the Etihad Stadium to develop several connected all-weather facilities. Centred around an expanded North Stand with one larger, single upper tier increasing capacity to over 60,000, these will be fully integrated into the stadium and include:

  • A sky bar with views overlooking the pitch
  • A stadium roof walk experience
  • A covered City Square fan zone with a wide variety of food and drink outlets and a capacity for 3,000 people
  • A new club shop
  • A museum
  • Modest workspace
  • A 400-bed hotel

The North Stand itself will open during the 2025/26 football season, with the hotel, workspace and public realm works including City Square, opening in late 2026.

The Club’s development will represent over £300m investment into East Manchester and create 2,600 jobs in the process.

Once completed, our new facilities will sit alongside the 23,500 Co-op Live Arena – a joint venture between City Football Group and Oak View Group - within a wider entertainment destination that our fans, the people of Manchester and the rest of the world can visit and enjoy.
