Description

For 80 years, Maine Road was the home of Manchester City. However, in 2003, the club moved to the Etihad Stadium, which is now their home. Plans were made to move the team to a bigger ground after the ground got severely damaged by a fire.

Maine Road was opened on the 25th of August 1923 with a Manchester City vs. Sheffield United soccer match. The stadium could hold about 85,000 spectators at that time, making it the largest stadium in England after Wembley Stadium.

The capacity of the stadium was increased in the 1980s and 1990s, reaching its current total of almost 200,000.

In the late 1950s, the Main Stand got redeveloped and renamed The Kippax Stand. Further smaller improvements were made in the years following, with a new North Stand constructed in the 1970s.

City followed the recommendations of the Taylor Report in redeveloping the ground into an all-seater stadium in the 1990s. The first stand to be completed was Platt Lane Stand in 1993, which was followed one year later by the demolition and reconstruction of Kippax Stand, which turned from a terrace into a new three-tier all-seater stand.

Plans to redevelop the club were made, but they were abandoned after the club was relegated in 1996. The club eventually decided to move away from Maine Road when the City of Manchester Stadium got available after the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

The final capacity of the stadium was 35,150 seats. The last match at Maine Road was played on the 11th of May 2003. Manchester City lost 0-1 against Southampton.

The stadium was finally demolished in 2003 and it was replaced with a housing development that is located in the Moss Side area south of Manchester's city center.
