City’s first home game of the season against Wulverampton Wunderers is set to realise a record breaking attendance at Eastlands for an opening home fixture…

City’s hierarchy, mindful of everyone connected with the club’s incentive to get the campaign off to the strongest possible start are again pulling out the stops to get the stadium buzzing.

The Blues board, on the back of this season’s admission reductions and price freezes have ensured that Eastlands has had a summer makeover in a bid to enhance the match day experience.

In an official call-to-bananas today, the club announced:

‘The club is determined to make the start of the new home campaign a memorable one for all concerned so setting the tone for the rest of the season.

‘The first game of this season should be like no-other and we aim to make it memorable so bring along the flags and the inflatables.

‘Our purpose is to make a statement that the City of Manchester Stadium’ is unrivalled within the Premier League and beyond for delivering the best match-day experience

‘To mark the occasion we are producing a ‘Welcome to Manchester’ flag and the PA and Matchday screens will be ‘Welcome’ focused.’

– If Eastlands rocks on Saturday the way it did against Hamburg in last season’s do or die Euro clash, the Wolves players knees will be knocking together by the time they take the field, I can tell you.
