Excellent news for the club, especially with regard to the fact that Arsenal are getting a new stadium. We've got to keep ahead of the rest. Our already fabulous stadium will be even more magnificent :proud: .
United given nod for 76,000 fans
Manchester United last night received permission to complete the expansion of Old Trafford. Council planners agreed to proposals to fill in the north west and north east corners of the ground. The development will raise the capacity of the stadium by 7,900 to 76,000 and could net the Red Devils an extra £5million per season. Work will start before the end of May and should be completed before the 2006-07 season. The increased capacity will mean Old Trafford will be second in size only to the new Wembley among football stadia in this country. United director of communications Phil Townsend said: “This is great news. It will be of huge benefit to the club, the fans — and the council.”

It's great news for Utd. :thmbup: Can anybody confirm where the new stand/seats will be constructed/placed? I know where the Stretford End is as that is the place where Mourinho gave his two finger salute last season when his Porto side eliminated Utd. so make that the reference point for the explanation please. :tongue: Thanx.

hehe @ haroon

anyhoo.. old trafford is such a beautiful stadium coz its one of the few genuine FOOTBALL stadiums, such that the stands are so close to the pitch, whereas most 70,000+ footy stadiums tend to have running tracks around the pitch, which makes it really crappy to be honest,,

great news for the club and for the EPL..extra 5 mil a year sounds sweet enough...does anyone have any idea if there are any images on the net showing what the new changes will look like??

You mean buy a player off the back of a international competition, lets see Karel Poborsky and now Kleberson. Who ever will be next?
