City Pull Plug On Inside MCFC
It was very disappointing to find out this week that Manchester City Football Club had decided not to continue with Channel M’s Inside MCFC TV programme. We understand that whilst Channel M were very keen to continue the weekly show and covering all costs associated with its production, our Club decided to pull the plug after one season.
Inside MCFC provided a great mix of interviews with the manager, coaches, players and former players, previews and reviews of first team matches, highlights of reserve matches and much much more. For those supporters that didn’t see the programmes first time around there was and still is the ability to download episodes to watch again via their website http://www.channelm.co.uk/programmes/index/0/27/inside_mcfc.html
Our Club is not awash with cash for expensive ventures and it is a real shame that Inside MCFC has finished. The programme played its part in providing our Club with increased TV exposure and accessibility to its supporters wherever they are based in the world. Next time you want to watch a reserve match again or catch an interview with a former player on the TV, you might think back to when we had Inside MCFC.
David Johnson, General Manager of Channel M spoke to the Manchester City Supporters Trust "'Inside MCFC was a flagship show for Channel M and understandably the production team are disappointed not to be involved with a second series. However, Channel M and City are parting very amicably so we will still be featuring all the main Man City stories on the live news and breakfast shows. Manchester City will also have a large slice of airtime in our new football documentary programme - The History of Football in Manchester, available towards the end of June on Channel M and www.channelm.co.uk".
