Sport has the power to unite people in a way that little else can; through teamwork and tolerance. These values resonate with us at Etihad, which is just one reason why we’re so proud of our long-standing partnership with Manchester City Football Club.
Congratulations City on your seventh English Premier League title in 14 years. It's an honour to fly your winning spirit around the world.
Over these past 14 years, we're proud to have been able to back one of the most successful football clubs in the UK. You've become one of the very best in world football, winning seven Premier League titles, six League Cups and three Community Shields, as well as the FA Cup twice.
First used as the venue for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, Etihad Stadium is now the homeplace of MCFC; a world-class venue with the capacity to seat 55,000 cheering fans. Man City moved from their old home at Maine Road to the state-of-the-art facility at the start of the 2003-04 season. Formerly known as the City of Manchester Stadium, the venue was renamed in July 2011 to proudly carry the Etihad title.
Etihad Stadium forms part of the wider Etihad Campus, housing the smaller Man City Academy stadium and training facility, as well as the Manchester Regional Arena.
