YEAR 10 AND YEAR 11 BTEC BUSINESS TRIP TO MANCHESTER UNITED
Year 10 and Year 11 BTEC Business students enjoyed a trip to Manchester United to learn about the finances of the football club. They received a presentation about the club’s revenue streams, how they are the most profitable and richest football club in the world.
Students enjoyed a tour of the museum and a chance to see the many trophies won and football memorabilia. The stadium tour gave students the opportunity to look around the ground, the press conference rooms, changing rooms and hospitality suites.
Finlay Mottershaw Year 10L2 - ‘The best part of the trip for me was touching the players t-shirts in the changing room and walking through the dugout.’
Chloe Jones Year 11L1 - ‘I learned that half of Manchester United’s income comes from 70 sponsors. They have over 75,000 seats in their stadium, which are sold out on most home fixtures. High profile matches such as against Liverpool need additional security in order to separate the fans. We weren’t allowed to touch the grass as it was being treated for the next important game and there was a strong smell of garlic that is used to kill any bugs on the pitch.’
Emma Mcintosh Year 11K1 - ‘The security at the club was very high and we were escorted on our tour by a security official. We got to understand how the players feel hyped up for a game as the noise from the crowd played as we walked through the dugout and into the ground. ‘
