Description: Broadhurst Park

First declarations of new stadium plans by FC United of Manchester came already in 2007, just two years after the club had been established. However, it wasn't until 2010 that the concept was presented.

In 2011 the municipality gave planning permission, though in Moston, not in Newton Heath as initially planned. Both locations lie in north-eastern Manchester, though. New design for the second plot was delivered by Taylor Young a few months later.

Opposition from local residents had put the project on hold, but in March 2013 appeals were rejected, paving way for the development. Unofficial groundbreaking took place on November 17 in front of a few hundred fans, while the official followed the day after. The entire stadium was to be ready in under a year, around September 2014. However, delivery time was postponed three times, ending on May 2015.

Of the total cost set at £5.5 million, FC United supporters collected over £2 million. The remainder is provided by various institutions, both public and private.
