Manchester City's Etihad Campus has been transformed as part of the club's role in helping the response to the coronavirus pandemic in the local area.

Man City have partnered with the National Health Service and Manchester City Council to develop and deliver a wide range of activities stewarded by the club at the campus.

The Etihad Stadium has been opened for the training of more than 350 nursing staff, including those working in the Nightingale Northwest Hospital, local community care and children's community care.

NHS and social care staff working within Manchester's hospitals and community health services will also have access to a rest, relaxation and exercise centre which has been opened at the campus.

There has also been a drive-through coronavirus testing facility for NHS and key workers set up at the campus, with over 1,000 per day currently being carried out on site.

And to ensure that groceries and household supplies are readily available for staff who need them, there is a click-and-collect shopping service.

"Having consulted, and worked closely, with our friends and partners from across the city for many weeks now, we feel proud to be playing even a small role within a wider community effort that has once again shown Manchester's strength of spirit, its resilience and togetherness," Man City's chief operating officer Omar Berrada told the club's official website.

"We remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting Manchester over the coming weeks through this crisis and beyond, into its recovery, in full confidence that our city will come back stronger than before."
