Eastlands 21557_017

CITY OF MANCHESTER STADIUM also known as Eastlands, home to Manchester City Football Club since August 2003. Seen here under construction in February 2002, it was first used as the venue for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. It was then redeveloped, with the running track removed and a new north stand built for use as a 48, 000 seat football ground

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the early stages of construction at Eastlands, also known as the City of Manchester Stadium. The stadium has been home to the prestigious Manchester City Football Club since August 2003, but this image takes us back to February 2002 when it was still a work in progress. Originally built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, Eastlands underwent significant redevelopment after that event. In this aerial view, we can see the transformation taking place as the running track is removed and a magnificent new north stand is being constructed. This alteration allowed for an impressive capacity of 48,000 seats specifically designed for football matches. The ambition and dedication behind this project are evident in every detail captured by Historic England Archive. The significance of this photograph lies not only in its historical value but also in showcasing how sports venues evolve over time to meet changing needs. From hosting international athletic competitions to becoming an iconic football ground, Eastlands represents both sporting excellence and architectural ingenuity. As we gaze upon this remarkable image, we are reminded of the countless unforgettable moments that have unfolded within these walls since its completion. It stands as a testament to Manchester's rich sporting heritage and serves as a reminder that even grand structures begin with humble beginnings.
