Premier League and Carabao Cup trophies to visit France!

Premier League and Carabao Cup trophies to visit France!
Having last season secured our fifth Premier League title in 10 years and a fourth consecutive Carabao Cup triumph, Manchester City will be taking the silverware on the road to celebrate with fans in France.

Due to travel restrictions unfortunately the trophies have not been able to travel outside the UK until now, but more dates and destinations will hopefully follow subject to regulations.

For the first trip after a season like no other, the trophies will visit fellow City Football Group club ES Troyes AC on Sunday, 26 September from 12.45pm – 2.15pm at Stade de l’Aube*.

The trophies will then travel to Paris ahead of our Champions League group game against Paris Saint-Germain.

Fans in the capital will be able to take their photos with the trophies at the PUMA Store at 22 Bd de Sébastopol during the evening of Monday, 27 September.

There will also be an opportunity to meet former City star and PUMA ambassador Nigel de Jong, who will also be attending the PUMA Store.

The midfielder made over 100 Premier League appearances for the Club between 2009 and 2012 as well as turning out 81 times for the Netherlands, including in the 2010 World Cup final and a third-placed finish four years later.

De Jong was a key cog in our inaugural top flight title victory in 2012, starting the move for Sergio Aguero's famous 93:20 goal against QPR.

Before then, however, the Dutchman had already written his name into City folklore as part of our famous FA Cup win over Stoke in 2011, playing the full 90 minutes as the Club claimed a first major honour in 35 years.

The midfielder will be signing autographs and meeting fans, with entry on a first come, first served basis.

À bientôt!
