Upholstering both the VIP Connell Club and the guests and player’s Mancunian Suite, CrestJMT are the pinnacles of luxury leather. The Connell Club offers exclusive fine dining for up to 220 guests – without compromising on the lively community spirit. The design of the space honours the family that founded Manchester City FC over one hundred years ago and the premium for an ambassador’s table forms part of a grant that funds projects in the local community. The designers believed that only the finest leather, which represents the quality of the club, was to be used at The Connell Club. Shelly Ash was chosen for the booths and banquets seating area. Whilst Vele Pebble was selected for the sofas in the VIP reception area. For the super soft dining area, the designers believed Byron was perfect for creating a smooth finish for the dining room chairs.
