Following the success of last summer’s Family Fun Day, City are to stage a repeat this Friday, the 6th August with Mancio putting his squad through their paces inside the Stadium…
City owner His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan has maintained all along that the club must pursue an ‘evolution being on every level and borne out of a sustainable approach that has its foundations in the club’s academy; it’s fans and the relationship with the Manchester community’ and it is staging events like this that can only help to continue to build bridges with a City faithful reknowned for it’s previous long suffering.
Entrance is free again with the Eastlands turnstiles starting to rotate at 14h00 East Manchester time. The training session, which should follow a light hearted theme should kick off an hour later following live entertainment and a first viewing of the newly-extended and revamped Family Stand.
Last year’s event realised an attendance of 10,000 Blues and this year’s figure is highly likely to surpass that as Mancio’s revamped squad will be introduced to City fans for the first time.
The likes of Kolarov, Tevez, Boateng, De Jong and Silva are now back in town so get weaving down there Blues and give them a cheer!
