City fans told – we don’t want your poxy flags no more

Bosses at the multi-millionaire’s multi-millionaire club slowly eradicating any signs that real fans exist at Etihad Stadium

Man City Etihad StadiumEverything’s going digital these days… even the flags.

Manchester City have now announced plans to replace fan’s long-standing flags with electronic displays as the Etihad Stadium gets a digital makeover.

The club today revealed it has installed LED screens around the second tier of the stadium for the start of the new Premier League season.

The middle section of the ground is regularly decorated with flags made by fans paying homage to Blues players past and present.

Though as a result of the new screens, the club say it will no longer be possible for fans on that level to hang flags from the stand.

However in a bid to fend off a potential fan revolt, bosses say plans are in place to produce digital versions of the flags to be displayed around the ground.

On their website the club say: “More information will follow soon on an exciting initiative for fans to send in images of their flags to have them digitised and featured on the new Level 2 LED display.”

They say the screens will “enhance the matchday experience for fans inside the stadium.”
