A group of seven young men bypassed Etihad Stadium security in the early hours of Sunday, August 27 and have shared their experience in a YouTube video.
The footage shows the thrill-seekers climbing the spirals and entering the stadium via the concourse and open doors with surprising ease. They are spotted by security but manage to make their way to the roof of the Etihad, from where the views are quite spectacular.
According to the MEN, Greater Manchester Police are treating it ‘public nuisance incident’ and have made no arrests despite catching the group in the act. Manchester City have condemned the actions of those involved.
While obviously illegal and not endorsed, it’s a fascinating video, especially for fans of City to see the stadium in a different way.
