Wythenshawe FC’s plans for a new hospitality and function suite at its Ericstan stadium have been approved by Manchester City Council.

The application details plans to build a single-storey building, to be called ‘The Townhouse’, on the 16,000 sq ft site.

The 3,000sq ft development will be used on match days for hospitality and club meetings, as well as outside match days for local community functions, seminars and other events.

The building will be constructed on the site of the existing car park, with a new car park planned for the south side of the clubhouse next to the training pitches.

The suite will include a bar, kitchen, cellar and an office.

The club also proposes the addition of a new turnstile entrance. Access to the site will remain unchanged.

The project team comprises 10architect, Watermans and WYG. Sale Property Consultants is the project manager.

There is no confirmed start date for the build, as the club is in the process of securing additional funding for the project. However, the scheme is expected to complete by the end of the year, according to Sale Property Consultants.

Lack of cycle lanes upsets me :-(

The existing clubhouse already has those facilities. The artists impression shows the next one right against the existing one. Why two clubhouses? Is it the football club that will benefit from any profits?
Is there really a need for an additional facility?
