Manchester City football club have revealed multi-million pound plans to expand the Emirates Stadium by up to 12,000 seats.

The club had an average capacity of 99.1 per cent in their Premier League games last season and the investment into the stadium expansion is thought to be around £50m.

The new plans would see the south stand increased by 6,000 seats - including an additional 600 seats for away fans - then depending on public reaction and ticket sales next season, the north end could also be expanded by the same number, bringing the total capacity to 60,000 seats.

Should the plans go through, Manchester City would overtake both Newcastle United and Sunderland to have the third-largest ground in the Premier League after Arsenal's Emirates Stadium and Manchester United's Old Trafford.

The move would also see season ticket prices cut to £299, although there will be a new type of 'premium' seating, which will be more expensive.

City officials are planning to submit a planning application by the end of 2013 with a view to start construction work next April to be completed by the start of the 2015/16 season.
