What is included with this book?


Manchester City Football Club are regarded as one of the most innovative, forward-thinking sporting organizations not only in Europe, but the world. The Premier League side has been crowned champions in 2012 and 2014, winning several domestic trophies in recent years and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.The Club’s annual turnover is now in the top 10 in world football and the team has many of the best players and, in coach Pep Guardiola, the best club coach in world football. Averaging more than 54,000 attendees per home game, only Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham have bigger crowds.  And with more than 25 million Facebook Likes, 4 million Instagram users and 5 million Twitter followers, City is one of the fastest-growing clubs in European football. 

But what goes on behind the scenes?  Who are the people driving the Club forward and how do Manchester City operate on a day-to-day basis?  The Etihad Stadium Manchester City Football Club Owners' Workshop Manual aims to show the steel behind the silk – the men, women, technology and machinery behind a club that boasts more than 2 million fans worldwide and 750,000 supporters throughout the UK.  From state-of-the art facilities at the City Football Academy, to the green technology that powers the stadium on a match day, this is a fascinating and rarely seen glimpse at the army of people who make things happen. Meet Rose, the press room tea lady who has been at the Club for more than 50 years, and Hudson, the hawk brought in to kill vermin on night-time hunts.  The technology behind the floodlights and scoreboard, the garlic spreading on the training pitches and how security keep drones away from taking pictures of training are all shown.  The club photographers provide fantastic color images to accompany the in depth text, all presented in an appealing style, giving the reader the real 'behind the scenes' insight into the life in the stadium.  Contents include
