Behind the Scenes

Open training: Champions League return on the horizon!

Follow the best of the action from Manchester City’s open training session ahead of our Champions League curtain-raiser against WFC Tomiris-Turan.

Gareth Taylor’s side lock horns with our opponents from Kazakhstan on Thursday 18 August, with kick-off in Madrid set for 20:00 (UK).

It represents our first competitive fixture of the 2022/23 campaign, with a Round One final tie against Real Madrid or Sturm Graz the reward for victory.

The absence of Ruby Mace and Ellen White aside, the City boss revealed in his pre-match press conference that he has a full squad at his disposal.

And preparations continued at the City Football Academy on Wednesday morning ahead of our journey over to Madrid.
