Manchester City are close to announcing a record sponsorship deal to allow Etihad Airways, the airline owned by the Abu Dhabi government, to take naming rights for the stadium in an agreement that will be a significant boost to the club's attempts to fall in line with Uefa's financial fair-play rules (FFP).

The deal will be confirmed at a news conference at Eastlands on Friday, with the club potentially in line to bank well in excess of £100m over the course of a long‑term arrangement.

The details have not been disclosed but City's new position within the game, backed by the enormous wealth and ambition of the Abu Dhabi United Group and their involvement in the Champions League for the first time, means they could bank an estimated £10-£15m a year from the airline and possibly even more.

The naming rights could provide an early test, however, for Uefa's FFP panel, which requires any sponsorship deal with a party related to the club's owners to pass a "fair value" test.

City have been trying to increase their revenue to meet Uefa's new criteria but Etihad's close links with the club's owners will almost certainly mean Uefa seek to ascertain that the airline has not paid an inflated price.

The new rules apply from next season, although Uefa will not begin assessing club accounts until the 2013-14 season. At that stage the licensing unit will assess club accounts from the previous two seasons, requiring clubs to break even subject to an "acceptable deviation" of €45m (£40m) over that period. City's last financial figures showed a loss of £121m and that figure could be even higher when the next statement is published in October.

Etihad already pay £2.3m a year as the club's shirt sponsor and, if everything is approved with the naming rights, the deal should go a long way to smoothing the club's thinking in terms of the new financial rules.

To the frustration of the manager Roberto Mancini, City's owners have placed new spending constraints on him this summer, acutely aware that if they ignore FFP they could actually be removed from the Champions League. While Manchester United have already spent £50m this summer, so far City have only signed Gaël Clichy from Arsenal for £7m and the Montenegro defender Stefan Savic for a similar amount.

The governing body have said they will use benchmarking exercises and specialists in the field to determine whether sponsorship and naming-rights deals are above their true market value. If it is deemed that they are, the excess must be deducted from break-even calculations.

Patrickas Vieira baigia profesionalaus futbolininko karjerą

2011/07/14 16:31

Patrickas Vieira oficialiai paskelbė apie profesionalaus futbolininko karjeros pabaigą ir nuo šiol dirbs "Man City" klube.

Prancūzijos rinktinės gretose pasaulio bei Europos čempionu tapęs saugas su Milano "Inter" triskart triumfavo Italijos čempionate, o su Londono "Arsenal" - tiek pat sykių Anglijos pirmenybėse. Pastaruosius pusantrų metų 35 metų veteranas vilkėjo "Man City" marškinėlius.

Nuo šiol prancūzas dirbs su ekipos jaunimu, taip pat bus klubo ambasadorius.

"Futbolininko karjera baigėsi, tačiau naujos pareigos yra didžiulis iššūkis,- sakė Vieira. - Turėsiu išmokti apie futbolą už aikštės ribų, bet man pagelbės daug patyrusių žmonių, tad esu tikras, jog lydės sėkmė."

Senegale gimęs saugas taip pat yra atstovavęs "Cannes", "Milan" ir Turino "Juventus" komandoms.

Manchester City Football Club has today begun a public consultation on a proposed world leading Youth Development and Training Facility.

The Club is asking local residents, its fans and other interested parties for their views on plans to develop up to 80 acres of brown field land diagonally opposite the Etihad Stadium.

The opinions of the residents of East Manchester will help shape the Club's submission for planning approval at the conclusion of the consultation period in early September.

Planning consent to improve the land in Openshaw West, acquired by the Club over the past two years, was granted in June and remediation work on the site will begin in the coming weeks.

Key elements and benefits of the proposals are as follows:

Football Development:

In addition to recruiting and developing top level senior professional players, the Club recognises the need to secure long term sustainability by investing in youth talent. The existing Academy, which since its inception has produced an unprecedented 30 players who have appeared for the first team, has reached its practical limits.

Etihad Stadium aerial shot

A comprehensive study by the Club of more than 30 elite sports development centres around the world began two years ago and provided the blueprint for a world leading youth development and first team training centre.

The centre would not only provide the Club with a competitive edge in terms of recruitment of players of all ages, but would also more than meet the requirements for a grade 1 Academy as set out by the Premier League's new Elite Player Performance Plan.

All aspects of the Club’s youth development, first team training and operations functions would be brought into the one location in the heart of East Manchester and would include:

• A new Academy for up to 400 young players with classrooms for 200
• On site accommodation for junior and senior players
• 16 football pitches, up to 12 of them dedicated to players aged from 8 to 18
• A state of the art first team building with changing rooms, gym, refectory and injury and rehab centre
• A 7,000 capacity stadium for youth matches
• Staff offices and a dedicated media centre
• A bridge linking the site to the Etihad Stadium and the rest of the Etihad Campus

Community:

Manchester City Football Club is firmly rooted within its community and our award winning City in the Community scheme touches 200,000 lives a year.

The above proposals would enable the scheme, together with our partners Etihad Airways, to widen its community programs around Football, Health and Activity, Community Cohesion and Skills and Enterprise.

The Club has already provided additional football facilities to be used by more than 10,000 local young people a year at the Football and Tennis Centre adjacent to the Etihad Campus and use of the proposed 7,000 capacity stadium and certain pitches on the site would increase that figure substantially.

Significantly, Manchester City Football Club have identified up to 5.5 acres of the 80 acre site to further community use, which, led by Manchester City Council and reflecting local feedback, could include the building of an education facility and a Sports Institute.

Manchester City Council is currently undertaking its own public consultation around the draft Eastlands Community Plan (www.manchester.gov.uk/eastlandsconsultation) and it is likely that Manchester City Football Club will make a financial contribution towards proposed leisure facilities in the area which could include the creation of a swimming pool.

Regeneration - Economy and Environment

The Club’s proposals would build on the legacy of the Commonwealth Games in this priority area of the UK in terms of regeneration needs.

Around 160 construction jobs would be created during the project, 70% of them for local people. Permanent employment at a range of levels for up to 90 people is also likely with up to 80% of positions being made available for local residents.

The Club would source the majority of materials, equipment and services for the construction and operation of the site from local companies, as it did in 2009 when 92% of the cost of the development of its administrative offices was spent within ten miles of the Etihad Stadium.

In addition to remediating up to 80 acres of land which in itself will improve the local environment, the Club would plant several hundred new trees and almost a mile of yew and beech hedging around the perimeter of the site which would further enhance the area.

The centre would reach the highest possible environmental standards with low carbon, low water and low waste measures being employed to minimise impact on the environment and encourage local bio diversity.

Garry Cook, CEO of Manchester City Football Club said, “Manchester City’s ambition is to be a successful and sustainable football club and youth recruitment and development through a top class facility is a key component of that ambition. Our research to date has been painstaking and our planning comprehensive and whilst our plans would inevitably have a positive impact on both our young and established playing talent, the regenerative and economic impact for our community should not be underestimated. We welcome the views of all of the communities we serve as we seek to gain planning permission for this most exciting of proposals.”

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: "The partnership between Manchester City Football Club, the Council and New East Manchester would accelerate the regeneration of the area, delivering significant community and economic benefits. This new facility would help us continue to improve education and skills and will create jobs and other opportunities for local residents as well as being a further example of the club's investment in the area.

"It would be complementary to other proposed developments in the area, which would combine together to fulfil our vision for East Manchester as a centre for elite sport."

Members of the public interested in taking part in the consultation can visit an exhibition at the Etihad Stadium from Tuesday July 19th to learn more about the proposed development. Exhibition opening times are 11am - 7pm, Monday to Friday and 11am - 4pm on weekends (closed matchdays).

Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce that it has teamed up with the global sports video game company, EA SPORTS, as its new partner.

The deal was announced at EA SPORTS' campus in British Columbia as part of City’s summer tour activity in Canada and is unprecedented in both its scale and scope within the computer game industry.

The partnership between Manchester City and EA SPORTS brings fans closer to the action than ever before. As part of the agreement, dedicated MCFC virtual content will be distributed through the Club and EA SPORTS' digital channels, including MCFC match simulations prior to the fixtures and unique visuals of the City stars in action.



The video, which is currently one of the first FIFA 12 gameplay edits available, was designed especially for Manchester City fans, showcasing the Club’s stars. Having captured 360 degree 3D headscan shots of the entire first team squad, EA SPORTS have for the first time recreated the most authentic representations of the players, which will be featured in the eagerly anticipated UK release of FIFA12 on the 30th September 2012.

EA SPORTS will also be investing in dedicated experiential gaming areas, in around the Etihad Stadium, to further enhance City Square and the family zone within the concourse.

EA SPORTS is the world’s leading interactive entertainment software studio, which develops, publishes and distributes interactive software worldwide for video game systems, personal computers, wireless devices and the Internet.

Nick Harford, Football Business Lead, EA SPORTS, said,

“We are delighted to be entering into a dynamic new partnership with Manchester City. Through this agreement, EA SPORTS will invest in the creation of bespoke content and experiences that bring Manchester City fans across the globe closer to the team they love.”

Ian Cafferky, Chief Brand & Commercial Officer for Manchester City Football Club added:

“EA SPORTS' reputation is unparalleled, both within the video game industry and around the world. The fact that a company of EA SPORTS calibre has joined our stable of valued partners, shows a clear indication of the Club’s growth and appeal to a global audience.

“Many of our supporters, not to mention first team players are huge fans of FIFA. The deal with EA SPORTS was therefore a natural fit and the beginning of what I know will be an exciting partnership.”

A behind the scenes video will be released prior to the launch of FIFA 12, on 30th September, giving fans the opportunity to download an exclusive and unique free Club specific pack design.

He added: "All of these players have a cost because they are good players. If there are teams that want to buy them they need to pay, like us.

"I don't understand why we pay a lot of money and other teams don't."
