New bridge sponsor namedSuissegas sign three year deal

City have announced a commercial agreement with Suissegas, which will see them acquire the naming rights for the bridge that links the Etihad Stadium with the rest of the Etihad Campus.

The company, who are involved in the trading and selling of natural gas, have signed a three year contract which also sees them become Official Gas and Electricity Partner in the UK, Italy and Switzerland.

“We are delighted to welcome SuisseGas as the first commercial partner to support the expansion of the Etihad Campus into our new City Football Academy", said Ferran Soriano.

"SuisseGas is a young company, committed to developing a direct relationship with its consumers in new markets, and this relationship will help raise awareness of their work.

“The SuisseGas Bridge is an important physical structure for the Etihad campus and for the East Manchester region, but it goes beyond that. It is a symbolic link between the top quality footballers who play in the Etihad Stadium and the future talent being developed across the bridge.”
