    So the two Olympic size swimming pools,as I mentioned earlier in the thread, could be possible
    Something else that was said to me about the pools is that although the Manchester Aquatics Centre is a great facility, it cannot be used for an Olympic Games or world champs as there is only seating on one side
    Makes me wonder if the plan is to bid for a Manchester Olympics

    I asked about this last night as well - was told it is not true
     
  6. Given that they're talking about higher education driving the future development of the Campus, I thought this could be of interest (maybe the first acorn from which an oak will later grow): https://www2.mmu.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/2017/16699/

    For those who don't want to click the link, Manchester Metropolitan University has announced that it's starting up, for 2017 entry, a course called 'Manchester City Community Football Coaching'. It's a "two-year foundation degree with the option to extend to BSc (Hons)" and will be taught at the Etihad Campus. The degree "will be delivered in partnership with Manchester City Football Club’s foundation, City in the Community ".

    Some quite significant changes on my visit this week. Have to say the ground looked beautiful. Lots of Dark blue navy seats which are wider behind both dugouts for the tunnel club in both that immediate block and the back half of the block next to it if that makes sense. (On both sides so is symetrical) Huge changes internally - the dressing room is kind of suspended from ground level into a void. The players have a good 40 to 50 metre walk to the pitch and a number of stairs.

    Been informed the north stand will probably start next summer. Also don't be suprised to see more corporate around tier 2 in coming years when we expand again. Dare I say tier two may all be corporate"within 5 years.

    More corporate = more empty seats for the vast majority of games.

    So that's the talk of the giant 2 tier North stand completely out the window then?

    I've heard they're waiting for the decision on safe standing + a general uplift in ticket sales. There are designs kicking about for a huge single tier stand.
