Manchester City reveal radical overhaul of Citizens suite hospitality area

Fri 2nd Aug 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Manchester City supporters will soon be able to enjoy the ultimate matchday experience in a new hospitality area in the Etihad Stadium.

The Club has revealed the radical overhaul of the Citizens suite, just in time for the kick-off of the 2013-14 season, meaning some of the best seats in the house just got better.

Football fans who book into Citizens will enjoy unrivalled views of all the end-to-end on-field action and dugout drama. Seating is on level two on the halfway line, directly opposite the Players’ Tunnel and tactical area – giving Citizens patrons direct views of every moment of managerial magic and movement from the bench, throughout every twist and turn of the game.

In a first for UK stadia, Manchester City has introduced four new entertaining rooms situated at the back of the space, which are available for exclusive hire. The ‘Back Four’ will give members an unrivalled matchday experience to be the envy of all City supporters, combining Citizens’ relaxed environment with the comfort of a private box. When hired for the season, fans can dedicate their ‘Back Four’ box to their favourite defender in Manchester City’s history to create a truly personalised space within the Etihad Stadium.

The new restaurant and bar will seat up to 328 guests in an aspirational but comfortable space that brings together the beautiful game, good food and good company. Food and service will be overseen by the Club’s new catering partner, Fabulous Fan Fayre – a collaboration between Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts and Legends Hospitality – and will include a hearty carvery. 

Justice Ellis, Marketing Manager at Manchester City Football Club, said: “Manchester City is dedicated to redefining the football experience, and Citizens is just one example of how we are improving matchdays for our fans. We wanted to create a space where fans new and old can relax and enjoy watching world class football, while getting a premium level of service in a welcoming, comfortable and unpretentious space.”

The overhaul of Citizens follows the recent launches of a number of game-changing new hospitality areas, including the EA SPORTS Hospitality Box, the Harvey Nichols Experience Box and The Mancunian.

Bookings are now available for both matchdays and non-matchdays during the 2013-14 season.
