Construction News Image
Ireland's largest construction firm Sisk has been appointed by Manchester City Football Club as construction contractor for the €350 million development of the Club's best-in-class fan experience and year-round entertainment and leisure destination at the Etihad Stadium.

The development will include several connected all-weather facilities, fully integrated into the stadium, centred around an expanded North Stand with one larger, single upper tier above the existing lower tier, increasing capacity to over 60,000.

Above the upper tier there will be a sky bar with views overlooking the pitch as well as a stadium roof walk experience.

A covered City Square fan zone, with capacity for 3,000 people and a wide variety of food and drink outlets, a new club shop, museum, workspace and a 400-bed hotel will also be constructed as part of the Club’s development.

Main construction works commenced on-site in November 2023 which will mean the North Stand itself will be complete and open during the 2025/26 football season. The hotel, workspace and public realm works, including City Square, will subsequently complete by late 2026.

Throughout the construction phase of the project, Sisk expects the project to support over 890 full time equivalent roles.

Paul Brown, CEO, Sisk said: "We are delighted to be working on such an iconic venue and look forward to creating a best-in-class fan experience and year-round entertainment and leisure destination at the Etihad Stadium.

"Our experience and expertise of delivering large complex engineering infrastructure in large public spaces will play a pivotal role in this project's success. Our previous stadia knowledge remains embedded within Sisk. Key Irish senior directors who spearheaded those projects in the earlier parts of their careers will now offer invaluable support to our team in Manchester."
