ETIHAD STADIUM HOSTS FXF13
Manchester City FC’s award-winning fan engagement activities have been recognised throughout football and the sporting world as ‘best in class’.
From the pre-match City Square precinct to post-game digital activation, the club has defined and delivered a ‘holistic, lifecycle’ approach to fan engagement around Etihad Stadium. As such, we’re delighted to be heading to Etihad Stadium for Fan Experience Forum 2013.
Etihad Stadium is the fifth-largest stadium in the Premier League and the twelfth-largest in the United Kingdom, with a seating capacity of 47,805. Forming a key element of Manchester’s SportCity district, the stadium hosted the 2002 Commonwealth Games before being reconfigured to specifically host Premier League football.
The club has invested significant sums in infrastructure to enhance the ‘fan experience’ with outside catering areas, the City Square entertainment stage and enhanced catering offers. Development plans for the Etihad Campus adjoining the stadium were revealed in mid-September 2011. The club has released images of a cutting-edge youth academy and training facility, including a 7,000-capacity mini stadium on derelict land adjacent to the stadium’s SportCity location.
NB: At the close of the day, delegates of TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2013 (6-7 June 2013) will join Fan Experience Forum 2013 attendees at Eithad Stadium for the stadium tour and international networking reception.
