November 29, 2011 Manchester Evening News, Mike Keegan
Manchester City are aiming to give their fans a taste of Europe off the pitch – by setting up a Continental market outside the Etihad.
The Blues, in the Champions League for the first time this season, face a nerve-jangling 90 minutes against German giants Bayern Munich next week in a bid to qualify for the next stages.
But even if they don’t, fans will be able to tuck into bratwurst as though they were in Bavaria and crepes as though they were in Cannes at the ‘Match-Day Markets’.
Euro-style stalls will be set up in City Square, kicking off with this weekend’s visit of Norwich City.
They will serve food and drink from across the Continent – no doubt to the joy of some of the Blues’ cosmopolitan squad.
But there will also be a taste of home.
The ‘Manchester Egg’ unveiled by the M.E.N. will also be on offer as a pre-match treat for the Blues faithful.
‘Hatched’ by amateur chef Ben Holden last year it consists of a pickled egg wrapped in Bury black pudding and coated in breadcrumbs which is then deep-fried in hot oil and was a star of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival.
To add to the Mancunian theme there will also be an ‘I love Manchester’ stall and stalls specialising in football memorabilia.
Top city centre department store Harvey Nichols will be on hand to offer ‘something for the ladies’ while a Legoland stall should keep junior Blues entertained.
