FC United were yesterday given planning permission to build a new 5,000-capacity, £3.5m stadium in Moston, Manchester. The Manchester City Council Planning Department approved the plans, despite objections from some residents.
The Reds, set up by disaffected Manchester United fans, are a step closer to a home, as well as developing facilities for community use. FC United are seventh in the Evo-stick Premier Division.
