FC United find new stadium site

Share/Save

FC United Manchester have found a new location for their planned 5,000-capacity stadium.   A deal to build on Ten Acres Lane, Newton Heath was torpedoed by local government funding cutbacks.  However, with the approval of Manchester City Council's executive committee, the club have selected the Ronald Johnson playing fields in nearby Moston as their new home.   The Red Rebels currently play at the Giggs Lane home of League Two club Bury.


The plan for the stadium remains the same with up to 600 seats and a clubhouse.  They still have to consult with local residents and community groups, but are confident of creating a Conference-ready stadium.
