We're Not Really Here

"We are not, we're not really here. Just like the fans of the Invisible Man, we're not really here!"

The long wait is almost over.

City return to action on Wednesday, playing host to Arsenal at the Etihad.

More than three months since we last played, we can’t wait to get back on the pitch - though everyone at the Club is just sorry that, for now, you can’t be with us due to the safety restrictions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some things will be different but some things will never change: our shared love for Manchester City and the beautiful game.

We're Not Really Here: Get involved


To herald the resumption of the 2019/20 season, we’re launching a special campaign under the banner ‘We’re Not Really Here’ - a phrase synonymous with all our fantastic supporters.

The title, of course, refers to the stadium anthem which has become the staple of all City fans for the past two plus decades.

Arguments and myths still rage about the precise origins of the chant but, irrespective of its true genesis, what isn’t in doubt is that We’re Not Really Here become a loud and proud vocal backdrop to City fixtures, both home and away, as the chant became embedded in our Club culture.

For now, We're Not Really Here but for this team, this badge, this City - wherever we are - we will always be there.

Watch the video above and get in the mood for the return of the Champions... COME ON, CITY!
