City say the Manchester Stadium at Eastlands will be renamed Etihad Stadium.

It's because they've agreed a 10-year partnership agreement with Etihad Airways.

The stadium rebranding was just one of several commercial deals announced by City chief executive Garry Cook and James Hogan, chief executive of the airline.

Cook said:

'We are delighted to be expanding our relationship with Etihad Airways through this comprehensive partnership agreement.

'Most importantly, in addition to delivering significant revenue at a key stage in the club's evolution, the agreement creates exciting opportunities for our two organisations to co-operate more deeply commercially and on media and community initiatives in the future.'
