Manchester City Etihad Stadium

The Manchester City Stadium, also known as the Etihad Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is the home ground of Manchester City Football Club. With a domestic football capacity of 55,097, is the third-largest stadium in the Premier League and eighth-largest in the United Kingdom. The stadium, originally proposed as an athletics arena in Manchester's bid for the 2000 Summer Olympics, was converted after the 2002 Commonwealth Games from a 38,000 capacity arena to a 48,000 seat football stadium.
