Ian Cheeseman to produce matchday vlogs

VLOG: Ian Cheeseman will be producing matchday vlogs for every PL game this season

VLOG: Ian Cheeseman will be producing matchday vlogs for every PL game this season

Manchester City are pleased to announce we have teamed up with freelance journalist Ian Cheeseman, who will produce a matchday vlog for all 38 Premier League games throughout the new season.

These will be hosted on mancity.com and available within two hours of the full-time whistle.

Ian is well-known to City fans as a passionate fan and specialist reporter and commentator on all things City.

He spent over 20 years at the BBC as their dedicated Manchester City reporter, but was also the Club's original video commentator back in the 1980s.

He hosted the Junior Blues for 15 years and was the stadium announcer for the Club during a career that has seen him report from all City's games since the 1970s.

Ian has attended well over 2000 matches and hundreds of supporter events down the years, developing a unique understanding of the Club and its supporters.

After leaving the BBC in 2017, Ian began producing matchday Youtube vlogs involving fans, ex-players in his own inimitable presenting style.

They have been hugely successful and offer a unique insight into the matchday experience at both home and away games.

"I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be given this opportunity by the Club that is so close to my heart,” Ian told mancity.com.

“I've always considered myself very lucky to be a Blue and being able to share my passion for the Club with supporters in Manchester and all over the World through my commentaries, and now my vlogs, is just amazing.

“I can only thank the Club for giving me this chance, as I begin this next phase of my career. The City fans have always been amazing to me and their support has always been overwhelming.

“I'm one of you, part of the City family. Thank you for helping me fulfil another dream. I'll try to live up to your expectations."
