The Manchester Derby
It’s that time of year where two of the biggest UK football teams go head to head in the Manchester derby, bringing the whole of Manchester to a standstill and painting the city both blue and red. The Manchester derby is this Sunday, 9th December at 1:30pm kick off, at The Etihad Stadium.
Unlike previous Manchester derby’s, this match will be slightly more heated and tense after City claimed the Barclays Premiership title last season, which caused some rivalry between the fans. As it stands, City currently have the upper hand.
Did you know that the first Manchester derby match that took place in 1881 on 22nd buy ambien 10mg November, where United, formally known as Heathens won 3-0? The last derby match that took place was back in April 2012 and City won 1-0.
The Manchester derby is considered to be the best in England and will be shown live on Sky Sports at The Mitre. You can enjoy the match with a freshly home cooked meal, some football snacks, washed down with our fabulous, family recipe mulled wine!
We can’t say which of the local clubs this Manchester city hotel (no pun intended here) will be supporting on Sunday and we welcome both the Blue and Red fans into The Mitre!
See you then!
