View Full Version : Do Arsenal ever build a new stadium?

I know The Emirates stadium is very new, but it's maximum capacity is 60,361 and if you end up becoming the best side in the world, that capacity is too small when you consider Barcelona's 90,000 seater stadium.

So my question is, have you ever seen Arsenal build a new stadium in FM2011, and what year was it built?

I think you have to wait 20 years.

So 2026 would be the earliest.

They built me a ground, named the Ashley Thompson Stadium - since I won them everything in consecutive seasons. But that took bloody ages

I'm in 2025 and I've had no expansion, no new stadium, nothing. I'm hoping the board will gimme a new one once the debts for the previous one are paid off.

To reiterate what others have said - you have to wait. They built one in my honour but it took 20 seasons before they did it!

Try asking the board to expand the capacity of the current staduim. They probably won't want to do this due to the amount of debt that the club as so you'll probably have to clear that before they consider expansion or relocation.

I can say for certain you don't have to clear debt.

I'm getting a new stadium at AC Milan and we have over 100m of debt already.

I'm in 2054 and they're still playing at the Emirates with 60000 capacity.

They wont build or expand without you editing the data as it has ridiculously low limitations. I was back to back winning trebles and quadruples for ten seasons, richest club in the world etc etc and they refused flat out.

In reality the stadium was designed to be larger AND expandable, it's only it's reduced size due to infrastructure issues which need to be resolved before expansion. Can't be bothered to find the links and the like but I made a detailed post about the stadium in the Arsenal data thread and it was ignored because it was a post that didn't read:

"Fabregas is amazing and should have all his stats raised as he's the best player in the world" or "Almunia is rubbish he should have a CA of 4 lol"
