We are pleased to announce that popular BBC Radio Manchester sports reporter Ian Cheeseman, NW Sports Journalist of the year 2012, has once again agreed to host a special commentator tour of the Etihad Stadium on 19 January 2014.
If you have ever wondered what it takes to provide his slick, entertaining and exciting commentaries, why not come along or maybe book the tour for that Manchester City relative/friend who is always difficult to buy for?
In addition to the usual behind-the-scenes glimpses of a Stadium tour, Ian will also give you a sneak preview into the life of a sports journalist on match day with a tour of the media and press areas.
He will explain his role as a match day commentator and host a Q&A session in our Academy Lounge, where you can also try your hand at commentating yourself!
Our last Commentator tour received a lot of praise. Here is just one of the tweets from the day:
The day will include:
• a 90-minute, professionally-guided tour of our Club and Stadium, including a look at the Club's heritage, the interactive Exhibition Area and our future plans
• a behind-the-scenes look at the TV camera area, the Sky box and the Director’s seating area
• a visit to the home player dressing room, the tunnel, pitch side, the manager's chair and the press conference room
• a Club lanyard
The tours will run on Sunday 19 January 2014. The first session will begin at 11.00am the second one will start at 2:00pm. Each tour will last for approximately two hours.
Prices are £15.00 for adults and £11.00 for concessions.
