Manchester City has asked supporters whether they would be willing to pay up to £580 (€651/$741) for a safe-standing season ticket as part of plans to expand Etihad Stadium, according to multiple reports.

It emerged that the club is considering expanding the capacity of the Etihad by approximately 8,000 to 63,000, with safe-standing plans said to be on the agenda.

The BBC has now reported that supporters of the defending Premier League champions have been asked whether they would be interested in a safe-standing season ticket as part of an online survey to gather supporters’ thoughts on the match-day experience.
