Sportcity Manchester is a sports district in eastern Manchester, that rose to fame as host of the 2002 Commonwealth Games. [cite web|url=|title=The Games|publisher=Commonwealth Games Legacy|accessdate=2007-12-05] It hosts the regional base for the English Institute of Sport and so therefore benefits from: Athletics tracks, The National Squash Centre, The Regional Tennis Centre and the City of Manchester Stadium. [cite web|url=|title=North West Contact|publisher=EIS|accessdate=2007-12-05] It was also the proposed location for the "SuperCasino" [cite web|url=|title=Manchester is surprise casino winner|publisher=BBC|accessdate=2007-12-05] which was hoped would spur re-generation in the area, but the plan was rejected by the House of Lords.
