Our 125th anniversary celebrations got under way with a launch event held at the City Football Academy earlier tonight.

Over the course of the evening, fans and invited guests were given a glimpse into our plans to celebrate its 125th season.

CITY 125 KIT: Register your interest | Available to buy 29 August

Mike Green, Head of City in the Community, announced a fundraising initiative to support the charity’s ongoing work to tackle social issues in Manchester.

All funds raised will be channelled towards this initiative and, at the start of the 20/21 Premier League campaign, a new five-year programme will be launched – specifically focused on children’s development - to leave a legacy from the Club’s 125th season.  

To mark the end of the event and officially launch the season, Manchester City and new kit partner PUMA unveiled their specially designed commemorative anniversary kit, which will be worn by the men’s team when they take on Liverpool in the Community Shield at Wembley, on Sunday 4 August.
