    City turning Etihad into Las Vegas. It's gone full circle this thread.... And still nobody knows what's happening for sure.

    It'd be a bit of a gamble, that.

    Wembley doesn't do a bad job, I don't much like the stadium, but it gets rid of the crowd pretty quickly really, especially as its nearly twice the size, I suppose for most finals you have 2 separate "exits", the losers first, then the winners.

    It will be City's Arena.

    Bought and paid for by us.

    The partner will operate it but the proceeds are coming back to the club.

    Could be worth as much as £75m a year extra to us and the council.

    Legislating for 100 events a year at least.

    100 events a year? Is the aim to take the gigs that the MEN has?

    I know, I was quoting the person who said we had enough with Etihad, OT and the cricket for concerts. I'm all for it.

  7. The MEN arena is shit, hated by everybody in the business.

    Any info on Oak View using preferred architects or if anything close is being discusses yet?
    I agree this (and hotel) will kick start the next phase of the campus (and was always planned from day one I reckon...)

    No doubt it is. But im a punter and i couldn't care less about that side of things. At least getting there is easy. Getting to the Etihad is a significantly bigger ball ache. Transport is woeful. They best sort it out if this happens.

    Tbf the traffic won’t be anywhere near as bad for 20k at an arena vs 55k at the stadium....

    Or they might just have events on at the same time and have 75k coming out at once haha
