In the build up to Remembrance Day, we have participated in several activities to show our support for the Royal British Legion, with the poppy motif adorning the shirts of the men’s first team for the games against West Brom and Arsenal.
The latter will be donated to the Legion, who will be auctioning off the shirts to raise money for the charity.
Arsenal’s visit to the Etihad Stadium was the home fixture which fell closest to Remembrance Sunday.
To mark the day, Royal British Legion volunteers held a bucket collection prior to kick off, while inside the stadium City legends Tony Book and Mike Summerbee laid a wreath before a minute’s silence was observed.
In the City Store, fans can purchase poppy pin badges with all proceeds going to the charity, while the women’s first team will pay their respects before the game against Bristol City on Sunday 12 November.
Alison Bunn, Lancashire and Greater Manchester’s Royal British Legion area manager, and Lance Corporal Hart AGC, have been invited to lay a wreath before a minute’s silence is held at the Academy Stadium.
Meanwhile, City youngsters have also acknowledged the day of remembrance.
As part of the Academy education programme, the U12s have been learning about the battle of Passchendaele and laid a wreath at St. Phillips cemetery as a tribute to those who lost their lives.
We’re back for a third year and you can find us at Cathedral Gardens – directly opposite the National Football Museum.
Nicky Weaver will take to the City Square stage before kick off to preview the game, with another ex-Blue, Paul Bosvelt joining him.
