Broadhurst Park – design description

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.

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.
