If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a sports journalist reporting on the Premier League’s biggest games, MCFC are giving you the chance to find out.
We are pleased to announce the return of the Etihad Stadium Commentator Tour, which will be hosted by popular BBC Radio Manchester sports reporter, Ian Cheeseman on Sunday 13 March 2016.
For some it’s the best job in the world and as a lifelong Blue, Ian certainly agrees.
City commentator since 2001 and North West Sports Journalist of the Year 2012, he has an intimate knowledge of the Club and has plenty of stories to tell from his time covering City.
Ian will give you a unique insight into the life of a sports journalist on a matchday. In a special Q&A session in our Academy Lounge he’ll explain the role of a commentator and you’ll also have the chance to call the action yourself.
During the tour you’ll get a professionals view of the media zones, including a behind the scenes look at the TV camera areas, Sky box and press conference room.
In addition you will get the full guided tour of our Club and Stadium, including the Director’s seating, home player dressing room, the tunnel and pitch side.
This is your chance to find out what it takes to provide slick, entertaining commentaries and to quiz the man who has reported on some of the most exciting moments in the Club’s history.
This one off event will start at 2pm on Sunday 13 March and will last approximately two hours.
The tour is priced at £20 for adults and £15 for concessions. To book please call the tours office on 0161 444 1894 (option 4, option 2).
