Picture special: Spreading Christmas cheer!

Merry Christmas to City fans around the world.

It's a time for festivities, friends, family... and of course, football!

And our players have been very much getting into the festive spirit over the past few weeks...

As part of the ‘This City Loves Christmas’ campaign, Manchester City and City in the Community shared festive joy by donating thousands of bespoke PUMA footballs, everyday essential items and hours of volunteering to support members of its local community.


The charity has also funded 2,160 three-course Christmas day meals to families across Greater Manchester, who might otherwise go without and the Club adapted its annual hospital visit to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, delivering 450 gifts and special video messages from men’s and women’s players to the brave young patients who are away from home.

RodrigoScott Carson and Nathan Ake also dialled into City in the Community programmes and took time to speak with dozens of young people across primary school, high school and college settings.

Meanwhile, our Women’s First Team gave up their time to purchase, wrap and donated toys to children supported by Wood Street Mission.
