We are pleased to announce that popular BBC Radio Manchester sports reporter Ian Cheeseman has once again agreed to host a special commentator tour of the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 30 March 2014.
If you have ever wondered what it takes to provide a slick, entertaining and professional match commentary, why not come along or book the tour for that City fan 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!
