Apologies if posted already...

Well....it couldn't be held in a red stadium could it? Possibly hinting at a future where more events are held here rather than over in 'Tampa'?

This season's Blue Square Bet Premier promotion final will be held at the City of Manchester Stadium, the Football Conference has revealed.
The fixture will take place on Saturday 21 May.
It has moved from Wembley because the London venue will host the Champions League final seven days later.
Football Conference chairman Brian Lee said: "We are thrilled to have secured a world renowned venue of the quality of the City of Manchester Stadium."
The Conference was forced to search for another venue because UEFA will not allow a game to take place at a stadium hosting the Champions League final during the preceding fortnight.
Lee added: "Having enquired about several Premier League venues it was unanimously agreed that Manchester City is the ideal stadium for our promotion final."
Steve Sayer, Manchester City's chief commercial officer, said: "Manchester City is delighted to be able to host the Blue Square Bet Premier promotion final this season.
"This is the showpiece fixture for non-league football and a big prize awaits the winner. The City of Manchester Stadium will deliver a fantastic event for the clubs involved, their players, supporters and Deep Purple fans alike."

Just another added event to the upcoming regular roster of other events which will emerge... I'm a firm believer the stadium capacity will increase making the stadium more attractive for other sporting events and concerts

It won't be a sell out so there won't be any fans without tickets or anything.

It'd only be Luton who'd take big numbers.

I remember going to an amateur cup final replay at Maine Rd in the 60s when I was about 8 years old. Enfield v Skelmersdale - the crowd was quite big.

More importantly another payday for me ;) to go along with the 12 hour days for the "Take That" Concerts that are planned for next year.

Trigger - sorry I work in the city centre, when are these Take That gigs on and are they at City?
