The Etihad Stadium has been named Professional Spectator Sports Ground of the Year at the annual Institute of Groundsmanship Awards.
The award recognises the excellence and hard work of the entire ground staff team in putting on successful professional events, but also takes into account the fan experience across the entire operation.
Initiatives such as BT City Square, fan interaction, hospitality and care of disabled supporters all play a part in the destination of the award, and the club is delighted to have been recognised for excellence across such a wide range of factors.
Named as a finalist for the second year running, City were up against White Hart Lane, home of Tottenham Hotspur in competition for the award, and the Blues were announced as winners at a ceremony at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 5 December.
Congratulations to the whole team!
