Building company get shirty over Man City Etihad Campus

Manchester City and Manchester United replica shirts have been banned from being worn by workers on the Etihad Campus, the Blues new £100m-plus training complex, due to rivalries between builders who may support the opposing clubs, reports . BAM, the company constructing the academy, stated that shirts of any teams are not allowed due to the "partisan" nature of football.

A spokesman Mark Flattery, said: "They [BAM] just took a decision to put a blanket ban to address all of that and to stop it getting silly. We have just taken a very sensible decision to manage the site that way."
