Hotels near Etihad Stadium

The Etihad Stadium 

The Manchester City Stadium was originally built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games which were held in the city. The football club took over the stadium a year later, guaranteeing the long-term viability of this modern facility. In 2011, as part of a sponsorship deal with Manchester City, the venue was renamed the Etihad Stadium. 

Recent investment into Manchester City has seen them transform from a proud mid-table club with a strong history to a side that won the Premiership Trophy in 2012 and can legitimately challenge for silver wear in all competitions. Etihad Stadium is at the heart of this resurgence in the clubs fortunes and is a great arena for sports – as well as other fantastic entertainment.
