A City United

As a sporting Volunteer in the county, I’ve had the honour of helping out at some great venues throughout Greater Manchester.

Manchester City – Etihad Stadium (c) Brian F Kirkham

This painting was created in Corel Painter Essentials by me.

 

It’s of the City of Manchester Stadium (or as the Manchester City Fans now know it, The Etihad).  The current home to Manchester City Football Club and the site of the Commonwealth Games Athletics Competition in 2002…I’ve helped out here on a number of occasions as an Event Volunteer.  Favourite moment ? Helping out at the UEFA Cup Final when Glasgow Rangers played Zenit St Petersberg of Russia.

Nearby is the Regional Athletic Arena – which hosts major athletic events in the summer season.  As a member of Sale Harriers Volunteer Squad, I assist judges with Marking and retrieving items during field competition.

Manchester United – Old Trafford Stadium (C) Brian F Kirkham

This second painting was created in Adobe photoshop and is of Old Trafford Football Ground – Home to Manchester United Football Club and one of the venues used at the 2012 Olympic Games during the Football Competition.  I was a team leader for the ambassadors lining the route to the stadium on this one. Saved one or two taking on Manchester’s Rush Hour to get to the stadium.  Cheers, Chants, Vuvuzelas and songs – all in support of the world’s best playing in Manchester – for Olympic Gold

And my favourite fans I greeted to the stadium ?  Has to be the Brazilian Team!
