Etihad Airways Celebrates Manchester City Title Win

Etihad Airways staff members gather at the airline’s head office in Abu Dhabi to celebrate Manchester City becoming Premier League champions.

Etihad Airways has led the cheers of celebration for Manchester City as the club was crowned Barclays Premier League champions with victory over Queens Park Rangers at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.

It was the first time since 1968 that Manchester City has won the title in England’s top tier of  football and the first time the club has lifted the Barclays Premier League trophy.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive, said: “We congratulate everyone at Manchester City for their fantastic achievement this season and securing the Premier League title.

“Etihad Airways is immensely proud to be a close partner and friend of Manchester City and look forward to celebrating this famous moment with the management, staff and players at the club.

“It has been an incredible season at the club and to seal the title at home, at the Etihad Stadium, is very special for the loyal City fans that have waited a long time for this, as well as everyone at Etihad Airways and those in Abu Dhabi.”

The Etihad Airways logo has been on the Manchester City shirt since 2009 and the Abu Dhabi-based airline became naming sponsor of the club’s Etihad Stadium and Campus in August 2011.

To celebrate the final day of the season and show their support of Manchester City, staff at Etihad Airways wore ‘sky blue’ coloured attire at work on Sunday 13th May.
