Manchester City Unveiled As BT Sportís First Club Partnership

Fri 16th Aug 2013 | Football Sponsorship

On the eve of the new 2013/14 season, Manchester City Football Club has announced it has teamed up with the Barclays Premier League’s newest rights holder, BT Sport.

The three-year deal, which is a first of its kind in the Premier League, will bring fans closer to the action than ever before, with weekly interviews from key members of the playing and coaching staff, exclusive access and behind-the-scenes content.

As part of the partnership, the club’s purpose built pre-match entertainment area will be renamed BT City Square, from which BT Sport will broadcast live match day programming before every home game, enhancing the experience of City fans and Etihad Stadium visitors alike.

Commenting on the partnership, Chief Commercial & Operating Officer for Manchester City Football Club, Tom Glick, said, “BT Sport will be a fantastic addition to the Premier League family next season, adding a new dimension to what is widely regarded as the most popular and globally watched league in the world. 

“Having invested heavily in both on-screen talent and high quality programming, the new channel is set to not only be a big hit with BT customers, but football fans as a whole.

“We are delighted to work together with BT Sport as their first official partner and look forward to close collaboration to drive innovative content that can be shared across each of our media platforms.  

“As part of the partnership, our purpose built outdoor fan entertainment area, BT City Square, will also be enhanced, making it an even better venue for fans and families to gather before and after each home game.”

The club’s sentiment is shared by Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, who added, “We’re thrilled to be an official partner of Manchester City.  At BT Sport, we look to reflect the passion of sports fans and to create unique, engaging content and this partnership helps to give us the inside track.”
