CoachingHub is a subscription service made available by Man City, which allows members to access a range of on-demand educational content for football coaching (“Content”).
CoachingHub is for persons aged 18 years and over.
In order to access CoachingHub, you will need a “Cityzens” account. If you do not already have a “Cityzens” account, you can register at https://cityzens.mancity.com/. Suspension or cancellation of your “Cityzens” account by you or us for any reason will result in you being unable to access CoachingHub.
Your CoachingHub subscription
There will be two subscription services on offer: the monthly subscription service and the annual subscription service.
You will have a 7-day free trial of CoachingHub (“Free Trial”), after which you will be billed for the first month or year (depending which subscription service you have opted for) if you do not cancel your subscription before midnight on the last day of the Free Trial (please see Cancellation section below for further details on how to cancel your subscription). If you do not cancel your subscription prior to the expiry of the Free Trial, the day of the month/year immediately following the expiry of the Free Trial will be your monthly/yearly billing date for all subsequent months/years (“Your Billing Date”).
Your CoachingHub subscription will automatically renew every month/year at the relevant fee on your Billing Date until the subscription is cancelled.
Unless you cancel your subscription before midnight (UK time) on your monthly/yearly billing date, you authorise us to take payment of the subscription fee for the next month/year.
We use a third-party payment provider called Stripe to collect payment on our behalf. Stripe will ask you for the information they need to collect and process the payment from you as part of the sign-up process.
If any payment is unsuccessful, your CoachingHub subscription will be void and you will not have access to CoachingHub. Upon an unsuccessful payment, we (or Stripe on our behalf) will attempt to process the payment two more times. If the payment is successful upon either of these further attempts your subscription will be re-activated from the date of the successful payment. However, if both attempts to process your payment fail, we will suspend your subscription to CoachingHub until payment in full is received.

Access and updates
In order to keep CoachingHub up to date, we may from time to time run automatic updates or offer manual updates.
This may mean that we stop supporting certain devices and/or operating systems. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a compatible device to access CoachingHub.
We reserve the right to change: (i) the presentation, features, functionality and/or Content of CoachingHub; (ii) any third party that we engage to provide any aspect of the service to you; and (iii) the way in which we provide access to CoachingHub, provided we shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that any such change shall not adversely impact you and/or the continued provision of CoachingHub to you in a material way.
Device manufacturers also make updates to their devices which we have no control over. Updates made by device manufactures may not always be compatible with CoachingHub and it is possible that certain Content may not be accessible to you following these updates.
Ownership of the rights in CoachingHub
CoachingHub, and the Content included within it, is protected by copyright and (where applicable) trademark law. All rights in CoachingHub and the Content are owned or licensed by us.
You acknowledge that for the duration of your subscription to CoachingHub, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access CoachingHub and view the Content for your own personal purposes. Except for the foregoing, no right, title or interest shall be transferred to you.
You can cancel your subscription for CoachingHub by visiting www.mancity.com/subscriptions. Please note, you will not be able to cancel your subscription within the CoachingHub mobile application.
Please note that by purchasing a subscription for CoachingHub and accessing any Content, you have agreed to the loss of your statutory “cooling off period” (the right to cancel your purchase and receive a full refund without giving any reason for up to 14 days from the date of purchase) but this shall be without prejudice to our offer to you of a Free Trial. Your statutory “cooling off period” will apply if you do not access any Content.
Suspension and termination
We shall also be entitled to terminate your access to CoachingHub at any time, giving you as much notice as possible: i) should we be forced to for technical or operational reasons beyond our control; or ii) if we decide, at our discretion, to stop providing CoachingHub subscription.
If we decide to terminate in these circumstances, we shall refund the pro-rata proportion of any fee that you have paid for access you have not received.
You are responsible for ensuring that you have and maintain all necessary hardware and software to access CoachingHub. You will also need access to the internet to access the Content.
You acknowledge that the quality of the display of the Content may vary between devices, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available and/or speed of your internet connection. HD, Ultra HD and HDR availability is subject to your internet service and device capabilities. Not all Content is available in all formats, such as HD, Ultra HD and HDR, and not all devices allow you to receive Content in all formats.
You will be responsible for paying all charges from your broadband provider. Streaming audio-visual content and downloading applications can use up a lot of data so you will need to check that your data allowance is adequate for your use of CoachingHub. We recommend you check with your internet provider for information on possible internet data usage charges prior to using CoachingHub.
You acknowledge the streaming software used to deliver Content may require third party software and that you will be subject to the terms and conditions/licences of said software when accessing CoachingHub.
Third party claims
If your misuse of CoachingHub causes any third party to bring a claim against us, you will be legally responsible for reimbursing us for any losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with that claim.
Our liability to you
You agree that your use of CoachingHub is at your own risk. The Content has not been specifically tailored to your requirements and we are not in a position to individually assess the suitability of any particular Content (or CoachingHub as a whole) for your particular needs. We are also not in a position to assess the environment you are using CoachingHub in or any equipment you may use. You should therefore use your discretion to ensure that you use CoachingHub and the Content in a responsible way and do not do anything which may put yourself or any other person at risk.
If you have any concerns at all about your health or physical condition you should consult an appropriate medical expert (for example, your GP or specialist) before commencing or continuing use of CoachingHub.
We do not represent or warrant that access to CoachingHub will be uninterrupted or that there will be no failures, errors or loss of transmitted information. We do not guarantee that CoachingHub will be secure or free from bugs or viruses or that you will be able to access or use CoachingHub at times or locations of your choosing, or that there will be adequate capacity for CoachingHub as a whole or in any specific geographic area.
We do not guarantee that using CoachingHub will give you any particular results, including that you will develop any particular level of skill or competence. Without limiting the generality of this, CoachingHub is not designed to enable users to become professional coaches or to enable users to obtain or maintain any particular type of certification, accreditation or role. You must not rely solely upon CoachingHub to develop or maintain skills required for a professional coaching role, nor should you make any decisions which may affect you professionally or financially (including applying for or leaving particular roles) in reliance upon your use of CoachingHub.
If our delivery of CoachingHub is prevented or delayed in a material way by an event outside our control, we will not be liable to you, providing we contact you as soon as possible to let you know, and take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. If there has been a material delay in access, you may contact us to obtain a pro-rata refund of any payments.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for breach of your legal rights in relation to CoachingHub.
Our registered office is at Etihad Stadium, Etihad Campus, Manchester, M11 3FF, United Kingdom. However, if you need to contact us for any reason you can email us at [email protected].
Electronic Communications. We will send you information relating to your account (e.g. payment authorisations, invoices, changes in password or Payment Method, confirmation messages, notices) in electronic form only to your email address provided during registration or associated with your “Cityzens” account, so please make sure you have provided accurate contact details and let us know if your email address changes.
Exclusion of Third Party rights. This agreement between you and us is personal to you and no third party is entitled to benefit from it.
