Location Information:

 

The City of Manchester Stadium in Manchester, England is the home ground of Manchester City F.C.. The stadium is also referred to as Eastlands and sometimes abbreviated as CoMS. The stadium is the fifth-largest stadium in the FA Premier League and the twelfth-largest in the United Kingdom, with a seating capacity of 47,405.

Originally designed as part of Manchester's failed bid for the 2000 Summer Olympics, the stadium was built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games at a cost of £110 million. To ensure economic value and avoidance of a white elephant, it was decided that Manchester City would inherit the stadium after the games and it was ultimately converted for use for football. The stadium is bowl-shaped, with two tiers all the way around the ground and a third tier along the two side stands. In addition to athletics, the stadium has also hosted the 2008 UEFA Cup Final, England football internationals, rugby league internationals, boxing matches and numerous music concerts.

Manchester City F.C. signed an agreement with Manchester City Council in March 2010 to allow a £1 billion redevelopment led by architect Rafael Viñoly of land around the stadium and possible stadium expansion to over 60,000. Preliminary work on land around the stadium started in September 2010. The club is also in advanced talks with Manchester City Council to renegotiate the lease on the stadium. Outside the football season the stadium hosts occasional concerts, and is one of the UK's largest music venues, having a maximum capacity of 60,000 for performances. The first concert at the venue was a performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers who were supported by James Brown in 2004. Local band and vocal Manchester City supporters Oasis have played concerts at the stadium, one of which was featured on their DVD Lord Don't Slow Me Down. Another Manchester act, Take That, also released a DVD of their performance at the stadium, Take That: The Ultimate Tour. Other artists who have played the stadium are U2, Rod Stewart, Foo Fighters, Manic Street Preachers, The Futureheads, Sugababes, Bon Jovi, George Michael and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, among others.
