Manchester City

Ground: City of Manchester Stadium

Visits: 1

Date: 6th April 2007

Match: Manchester C - Charlton  0-0  (Premier League)

Attendance: 41 424

 

Just as last year I decided to travel to England during Easter. Four matches within five days and the fact I am always free from work this week makes this a perfect time to travel. I arrived in Manchester by 2pm but with a 5.15 kick-off I had plenty of time to check-in and have something to eat before heading towards the City of Manchester Stadium. I walked from my hotel (35 min.) and was at the stadium about 1h 15min before kick-off. I took some pictures of the empty ground and watched the ground fill up more than I had expected. 41,500 was there. Not bad considering the positions in the table. After some early (half)chances Man C fell asleep and in the second half the home team was very poor and Charlton had their chances but couldn´t score. Not the best of matches but a nice ground, reminded me in a way about Zentralstadion in Leipzig.
