EDS & Academy

Watch City EDS v Leicester on CITY+

City’s Premier League 2 clash with Leicester Under-23s will be broadcast live on CITY+.

The game gets underway at 19:30 (UK) on Saturday 16 October at the Academy Stadium as Brian Barry-Murphy’s youngsters aim to pick up where we left off before the international break.

James McAtee’s early strike, his tenth of the season in just seven matches, earned City a hard-fought 1-0 win over Derby in our last encounter, preserving our unbeaten start to the new season as well as top spot in the process.

Victory over the Rams continued a dream start to our defence of an inaugural PL2 title.


Only second-placed Arsenal finding the net on more occasions than our tally of 19, while we hold the best defensive record in the league after seven matches.

However, Saturday’s opponents won’t make life easy for our Young Blues, coming to the Academy Stadium with two wins from their last three matches.

Leicester currently sit ninth in the PL2 table, but only three sides in the entire league can boast a better defensive record than the Foxes so far this season.

They’ll have their sights set on upsetting the party on Saturday evening, and Brian Barry-Murphy’s men will need to be at our free-flowing best to claim maximum points.


It all points towards a fascinating encounter under the Academy Stadium lights, which you can follow live with a CITY+ subscription.
