The City of Manchester Stadium known since 2011 as the Etihad Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is the home stadium of Manchester City FC.  It was originally designed for Manchester’s failed bid to host the Summer Olympics of 2000.   Finally, it was built for the Commonwealth Games of 2002 with a construction cost of 110 million pounds.  After completion of the games, the stadium was converted into a football pitch and became the home ground of the Premier League’s Manchester City Football Club.  City left its old pitch in ground, signing a lease which allows it to play its home games at the City of Manchester Stadium for 250 years.
The stadium is oval, with two tiered stands surrounding the whole pitch and third tier on the two sides.  As of June 23, 2007, it was the fifth largest stadium in the FA Premier League and the tenth in the United Kingdom, with a capacity for 47,726 spectators.   It hosted the final of the UEFA Cup in 2008.
The City of Manchester Stadium has the widest field of any English football grounds and is of natural grass reinforced with artificial grass fibers.
