News: Man City Arab Owners Reveal World's Best Training Facilities!

Manchester City have unveiled their plans for a giant new training complex that the club claim will be the best in the world.

The 80-acre site next to their stadium in east Manchester will take years to be completed – with the first step being whether planning permission is given in December – and will contain a 7,000-seat mini-stadium, 15 full-size pitches, and sleeping accommodation for 72 senior and youth players.

The development has been planned for three years during which City sent officials to Arsenal, Barcelona and Ajax, as well as bodies from outside of football including the New York Giants, LA Lakers, New York Knicks and the Australian Institute of Sport to look at their operations.

Nick Smith, the project consultant who made most of the visits to other facilities, said: ‘We believe ours will become the world’s best training facility.’
