This ‘in conversation’ session will explore how the alignment of aspiration between Manchester City FC and Manchester City Council has brought huge investment in world class facilities matched by on-field success.

A run-down of what has been delivered over the last decade, the impact this has had on the surrounding area in terms of jobs and adjacent development and who led that – was it the city or the club?

Update on the new stand and hotel and what that will mean for the Club and the city region and how it links in with the new entertainment arena.

And what’s next? Is there anything else left to do? Are there further growth opportunities?
