Manchester City plan to increase the capacity at Etihad Stadium from 47,500 to a potential 60,000. 

The club will hold an exhibition on 12th July where they will present the club's plans to local residents and stakeholders.

The attendees at the exhibition will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and have their say on the proposal. 

The Abu Dhabi-owned club have two options, which are to undertake an expansion of the South Stand alone (phase 1),  increasing match day capacity to around 54,000.  Alternatively they will also present a plan to expand both the North and South Stand at the same time (phases 1 and xa2), which will increase match day capacity to roughly 60,000. 

Pete Bradshaw, Head of Infrastructure & Corporate Responsibility spoke to the club's official website of the planned redevelopment. 

He said: "Manchester City Football Club strives to provide its supporters and visiting fans with one of the best possible match day experiences in the Premier League and European football. 

"Games are selling out frequently prior to going on open sale and there is rising demand from supporters for more season tickets, match day tickets and premium seating. This is why we are considering these expansion proposals.

"We will be in touch with every fan who would be potentially affected by the changes in phase one, and we encourage fans, residents and anyone who has a point of view, to visit the exhibition in person or online and tell us what they think."

The club are currently improving another of their facilities with the new £200m academy and training complex due to open in one years time.
