Manchester City FC is introducing 100% recyclable and zero plastic beer cups at the Etihad Stadium this season and will also trial an ‘edible coffee cup.’

As part of the Club’s commitment to eliminate all single use plastics from catering operations and improve its carbon impact even further, the club is introducing an exciting, innovative and market leading paper beer cup.

The aqueous paper cups are 100% plastic free and manufactured from sustainable sourced paper and card, all of which is fully recyclable.

The cups will be collected throughout the stadium via collection points and waste stackers and will exit via the stadium’s dry mixed recycling waste stream to be 100% recycled.

For the first time on Campus, an ‘edible coffee cup’ will also be introduced. The club said:

This fantastic and innovative solution provides an amazing solution to waste, just eat your cup!

Fans will have the option to put these cups into the composting waste stream, if preferred.

These will be trailed alongside a full barista service of hot drinks outside the stadium in City Square and opposite west entrance.

Ahead of Manchester City’s first home game of the 2021/22 season and as part of the Club’s ongoing commitment to enhance the matchday experience for fans, a number of new and exciting food and beverage offerings have also been introduced at the Etihad Stadium.

To welcome fans back, the club is also offering half price food and drink inside the stadium at the concourse and concessions between 1pm and 2pm for the opening fixture against Norwich City this Saturday.

Items from seven local food operators and four local craft brewers will be available, with the new offerings providing an increased choice for fans attending fixtures, whilst also supporting local businesses within the Manchester community and reducing food miles.

The new artisan craft brews will be featured across all areas of the stadium, with local beers from the following local independent breweries available in both retail and hospitality outlets.

Seven of Manchester’s best independent local food operators will also join City on matchdays, taking over space in City Square to serve their fantastic local fayre from two hours pre-kick off at every game.

The club has also developed a number of vegan offerings.
