The Club’s stadium has been renamed as the Etihad Stadium, forming the centre piece of a newly-named Etihad Campus, which encompasses a large part of the Sport City site in East Manchester.

It’s a period of great success for Manchester City, and Etihad Airways are delighted to play a part in this great period for the Club.

Being partnered with such a successful club playing in the Barclays Premier League & UEFA Champions League gives Etihad Airways vast coverage to a global audience of sports fans.
