Great to see the thread hitting 1m views, there are only a few cities here that have that. Maximum respect and credit must go to VDB for his excellent and detailed coverage over the long term and also to jrb and the others who regularly post updates. Good work all of you!

Updated MCC Exec report.

New proposed Manchester University Sports Campus at Eastlands.

Picture shows the City Football Academy, the Etihad Stadium, and the as of yet undeveloped Etihad Campus land surrounding the Etihad Stadium





First little nugget - numbered point 1.7 on page 6:

Quote:
Since the March 2017 Executive work has also progressed with the Manchester Metropolitan University to develop a robust business case for the University to relocate and deliver its sports related undergraduate and postgraduate courses on the Etihad Campus. The University have now concluded that work and agreed to such a move. This report sets out those proposals in more detail.​
