City TALKS: Gavin Makel, Head of Women's Football

Football may be suspended, but there are still plenty of stories to tell about the inner workings of Manchester City.

That’s why we’ve launched City TALKS, a new City+ series lifting the curtain on how our organisation operates.

Ever wondered about the challenges of nurturing talent in one of the world’s leading football clubs? Want to find out more about how we’ve built one of the best women’s teams in the WSL? Tune in to City TALKS on City+ for a look behind the scenes and hear from some of the key people in our organisation.

These 30-minute episodes feature staff from across our business and will be streamed live every Thursday at 4pm BST (UK) on City+, with each episode available on demand after their initial broadcast.

This week, we are joined by Gavin Makel, who will be offering us a unique insight into the growth and development of MCWFC and how to build a successful team. 

Over the next few weeks, we will hear from:

  • Jason Wilcox, Academy Director
  • Lorraine O’Malley, Lead Sports Scientist & David Young, First Team Psychologist
  • Victoria Haydn, Senior Club Photographer
  • Serena Gosling, Director of Retail & Licensing

And you can get involved! Send us your questions on Twitter using the #CityTALKS and we will include the best submissions. 

Stay tuned for further guest announcements!

CITY+ is available FREE to all Cityzens on desktop, TV and the Man City App until football returns!*

*Once the Premier League / FA / UEFA confirm a date to resume competitions, CITY+ will revert to normal, with a monthly payment of £1.99. New subscribers joining during this grace period will still be able to enjoy the 30-day trial.
