Lifelong Blue Olga Halon celebrates City Century

Lifelong Blue Olga Halon celebrates City Century
Manchester City fans have had plenty to celebrate over the past few weeks!

From Cup wins to Champions League successes, there has been much to enjoy, as the Club continues to make history.

Earlier this week, there was further cause for celebration, as lifelong Blue Olga Halon marked her 100th birthday.

A much-loved member of the City family, Olga stands proudly as one of our longest-standing supporters and has earned deserved recognition for her unwavering loyalty in recent years.


Alongside her older sister Vera Cohen - also a lifelong fan who sadly passed away in February - Olga proudly stepped out onto the Etihad Stadium pitch as a Club Mascot back in 2018.

The siblings had supported the Club for more than 85 years, with Olga having held a Seasonticket since 1930!

The previous year, the pair had received a surprise visit in their home from former captain Vincent Kompany, as part of the Club's 'Nothing Without You' campaign.

In celebration of Olga's special Century this week, she received a phonecall in the morning from Club Ambassador Mike Summerbee.

Later in the day, whilst celebrating with her granddaughter, Olga then received a surprise visit from City in the Community Ambassador Alex Williams, who presented her with a special framed shirt with 'Olga 100' emblazoned on the back. 

She was also given a bouquet of flowers and personal letter from the Club.

Happy birthday, Olga! Many happy returns.
