Time Out says
Home to the noisy neighbours who are now letting their football do the talking
Manchester City have had a fair few ups and downs during their long - and not always illustrious - history, but they're now more than capable of going toe-to-toe with their big rivals over the other side of the city. And this modern stadium (originally built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games) is where the Blues call home. It's not all about the football though, with concerts, rugby and boxing all hosted here. it's an impressive arena well suited to a club going places.
