Sportcity from the air

Sportcity is the largest concentration of sporting venues in Europe and was first developed to host the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002. Work began in the 1990s to regenerate this extensive derelict site in East Manchester, which had suffered with the collapse of traditional industries in the area. The 2002 Commonwealth Games served as a tremendous driver for regeneration, leaving this area with a legacy of landmark sporting venues and a radically improved image.
