Manchester City Starts Work on £100m Training Complex

Manchester City Football Club (MCFC) have started work on a state-of-the-art £100m training complex. The new complex is being built on an 80-acre site across the road from the Etihad Stadium in East Manchester, and will be ready in time for the start of the 2014-2015 season.

The new development will provide an institute of sports science and sports medicine as well as accommodation for the club's youth academy. Facilities will include 17 football pitches, a 7,000 capacity stadium for reserve matches, a youth academy complete with classrooms and accommodation and a sixth-form college and leisure centre.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: "This is yet further confirmation that Manchester is a major destination that is more than able to hold its own on the world sporting stage. Before, during and since 2002's Commonwealth Games, the city has been home to much of the country's best sports infrastructure used for world-class competition, to attract the world's top sportsmen and women."
