Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Why will the track be demolished after the Games?
A. The future of the stadium has been secured through Manchester City Football Club adopting the venue as its home ground.

With more than 30,000 dedicated Manchester City supporters, the future of the stadium looks good.

The track will be removed in order to add 10,000 more seats, making the stadium a 48,000 seat stadium.

The warm up track for use in the Games (next to the stadium) will become home for Sale Harriers AC after the Games as well as being part of the English Institute of Sport development, which will include a complementary indoor facility for regional athletics.
