Manchester City and Feel Good Club are excited to be launching Feel Good City, a new collaboration to promote the benefits of football for our physical and mental wellbeing.

Feel Good Club is a local Manchester small business which ‘exists to spread positivity and love’ with a ‘mission to make one person feel good about themselves each day’. 

We are delighted to be collaborating with founders Aimie and Kiera on a number of activities over the next few months.

1.    International Women’s Day

To mark International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March, we will be holding a special event to celebrate women in sport at Feel Good Club’s cafe in the Northern Quarter (26-28 Hilton Street, Manchester, M1 2EH). 

Attendees will be able to hear from Karen Bardsley, former player and Girls Academy Manager, Charlotte O’Neill, Managing Director – Manchester City Women, Heather Leigh, Director of Product at Manchester City and more to be confirmed, on topics including working in football, mental health and the impact sport can have on physical and mental wellbeing.  

Tickets cost £5 and all proceeds will go to Manchester City’s official charity, City in the Community, to help support its City Girls Programme, a project that engages female participants with free football training, leadership and mentoring opportunities.

Tickets include a drink (beer, prosecco or nosecco). For more details click here.

2.    Feel Good Football

We know it can be intimidating to join a football club if you’ve never played before, so this free fitness session is aimed at beginners with no experience playing football. 

Sessions will be held fortnightly on Monday evenings in East Manchester from 7-8pm, starting on 11th March.

Attendees for the first session must sign up below and will be emailed more details ahead of the session.

If the session is full please join the waitlist and we will let you know if a space becomes available.

3.    Manchester Derby

On Saturday 23 March, City will take on Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

It can feel daunting if it’s your first game, or maybe you’re just looking for a likeminded group to enjoy the match with, so Feel Good Club will be hosting a meet up for 100 fans.

The group will meet at the café between 10am and 10.30am for coffee, before walking together to the Etihad to enjoy the game.

Details of how to claim a space will be confirmed by Feel Good Club on their Instagram on Saturday 9 March.

In addition to the above, we are working on a number of other exciting activations as part of the collaboration, so watch this space!

This is the latest mental health initiative launched by Manchester City, having recently launched a collaboration with Andy’s Man Club that will see weekly peer support sessions launched at the Etihad Stadium for male fans from May this year.
