Behind the Scenes

Inside City 400: A fan-tastic welcome, new deals and the return of pre-season!

It’s a landmark edition of Inside City as our compelling behind-the-scenes feature celebrates its 400th episode.

And, appropriately enough for such an auspicious occasion, it’s an extra special offering as we get a unique perspective on last Sunday’s memorable welcome ceremony afforded three of our summer signings by the City fans.

Amidst a glorious sky-blue backdrop, thousands of supporters thronged to the Etihad Stadium’s West Reception to officially welcome Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez and Stefan Ortega Moreno to the Club, though illness sadly meant fellow summer signing Kalvin Phillips couldn’t join the trio.

We also get a peak as the trio are quizzed by some of our talented youngsters who are just starting out their journeys in the game.

In a busy news week, we also go behind the scenes as both Rodrigo and Riyad Mahrez continued the good news by committing their features to the Club by signing new contracts.


And, as if that wasn’t enough, we also celebrate the return of Pep Guardiola’s squad from their summer breaks as the players reported back to the CFA for the start of pre-season training.

It all added up to another action-packed week at Manchester City – and we’ve captured all the very best moments in Inside City 400!
