Watch: CITC students meet FaZe Clan!

City in the Community (CITC) gave two of its BTEC students the opportunity to attended FaZe Clan’s pop-up event in City Square earlier this month.

Max and Lewis from the CITC BTEC programme met FaZe Clan at the event, asking them questions about their careers and what it is like being part of FaZe Clan.

The two students were also given the opportunity to enjoy the activities around City Square, which ranged from small, sided football games, table tennis and a gaming station where guests could play against Manchester City’s E-Sports team.

The FaZe Clan and Manchester City pop-up event marked the first international FaZe Clan pop-up.

FaZe Clan is a lifestyle and media platform rooted in gaming and youth culture who formed in 2010. FaZe Clan currently have more than 80 members.

Delivered in colleges across Greater Manchester, CITC’s BTEC programme aims to be totally inclusive, offering places to both male and female participants without trials.

Coaches deliver a holistic education of football, supporting those who want to develop their skills and abilities on the pitch as well as receiving classroom-based education as well.

The programme provides an opportunity for students who are passionate about football and their education, to combine the two as part of this course.

The curriculum provides students with an insight into what life would be like coaching in an academy session, through the way in which CITC staff deliver sessions.
