BLINDER: The sun was out for our game against Spurs.

A reusable beer cup scheme has been introduced at the Etihad Stadium, as part of Manchester City’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.

The cups, which were in use at Vincent Kompany’s testimonial game on Wednesday evening, are one of several changes made by the Club which will have an impact across the Etihad Campus.

Capable of being used 100 times, the cups can also be fully recycled at the end of their life and their introduction provides a number of other benefits as we continue to develop our sustainable practices.

As a result of this new initiative, an average of 29,000 single use plastic cups will be removed on each matchday and we anticipate this will save us from using 800,000 per season.

Additionally, the scheme also helps us to reduce the Etihad’s seasonal plastic waste by 2.4 tonnes.

Other in stadium changes include the removal of all plastic straws, sauce sachets, knives, forks and spoons, while Joe’s, one of our matchday bars, has become the first area within the Etihad to be completely free of single use plastic.

Our sustainable initiatives have also been extended to the City Football Academy and in particular, the Academy building that houses our youth team players and staff, which has been removed of all plastic.

‘’Manchester City has made a long-term commitment to sustainability, which began with a series of environmental regeneration works undertaken at City Football Academy during its construction in 2012,” said Pete Bradshaw, Head of Sustainability..

“The ‘Reusable Cup Scheme’ builds on these activities and those that we have undertaken to reduce and remove single use plastics at the Etihad Stadium in recent years.

“We look forward to working with our fans and stakeholders to see the positive impact that we can make together this season and beyond.”
