PRESS RELEASE: Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium transformed by SureSet

SureSet Resin Bound Permeable Paving has been contracted by Masonbarn Ltd to completely revamp the outside surfaces at the famous Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City Football Club.

The surfaces outside the Colin Bell stand see some of the world’s best players and VIP’s stride over them and they were in desperate need of a surface which was worthy of having such feet on them day in and day out.

The current surfaces were breaking up and lifting in certain areas and were painted in a road marking paint. SureSet have been contracted to install 530m² of their bespoke ‘Stirling’ blend to form the main vehicular route, and a striking contrast of ‘light blue’ coloured and recycled glass for the pedestrian routes.

The most exciting part of the project is the 2m x 2.5m² Manchester City Football Club crest that will be incorporated into the surface directly outside the player’s entrance. This will be entirely made up of SureSet’s own coloured glass resin bound paving.

The installation is due to begin on 5th August 2013 and will mark a historic day in the Stadium’s life. The vision is that on match days, the Coach will pull up on the ‘Sterling’ areas and the Players will walk over the iconic crest, and through to the ground.

All works are due to be completed by Friday 9th August with press days to follow.
