Manchester City scooped two awards at the prestigious MBNA North West Football Awards on Monday night.
The iconic “Welcome to Manchester” poster featuring Carlos Tevez that created such an impact in the summer of 2009 was the joint winner of the Best Club Marketing (Premier League) award, and the club’s partnership with Etihad Airways was the outright winner in the category of Best Club Sponsorship.
The awards were collected, at the ceremony held at Lancashire County Cricket Club’s The Point complex, by the club’s Head of Partnerships, Luis Vicente and Partnerships Client Services Manager Tania Cunha (both pictured). The evening culminated with the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement award to the highly respected former player, manager and now radio pundit Jimmy Armfield.
