City fans show their support for Cityzens Giving

City fans show their support for Cityzens Giving
The 2019/20 Cityzens Giving campaign closed in December with thousands of fans once again voting to decide how youth-led community football projects are funded in six cities around the world.

For the sixth consecutive year, we asked supporters to make a difference to communities across the globe and are thankful to each and every fan who participated. 

£400,000 was once again donated by City Football Group and its partners, to six community football projects run by young people for young people, with fans deciding the split.

Brought together by the desire to positively impact the lives of young people in cities around the world, the entire City Football Group family – including players, partners and most importantly, City fans– pledged their support to Cityzens Giving by casting their vote for the cause that resonated with them.

We are excited to reveal that Mumbai’s Education project, supported by club partner Cisco, and Cape Coast’s Safe Water project, supported by club partner Xylem, were the most popular projects, each gaining 24% of the overall vote.  

Similarly, your support of this year’s campaign will also help young leaders in four other cities – PhiladelphiaManchesterMelbourne and New York – deliver their inspiring, community football programmes, which are tackling challenging social issues and changing lives.

The 2019/20 campaign takes the total Cityzens Giving funding up to £3.4m by the end of this season, now supporting initiatives in a total of 21 cities around the world.  

This wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding efforts of our fans and we would like to thank everyone who participated for their support.
