UK football club Manchester City has unveiled plans to build a new 80-acre youth academy and training facilities, and a 7,000-seat stadium.

The stadium is part of a larger project that will also include 16 new football pitches, commercial developments, a new media facility and club offices.

The facility will be built opposite the current stadium at Eastlands and will be linked to the Etihad Stadium via a bridge.

Manchester City will undertake the new development as part of a £300m, ten-year sponsorship deal signed with Abu Dhabi’s national airline, Etihad.

The project is expected to be complete in six years.
