SNAP HAPPY: Send City in the Community your festive selfies to show your support for #BlueChristmas.

City in the Community (CITC) is calling on fans to strike a pose in support of their newest initiative this Christmas.

With December’s arrival comes the launch of #BlueChristmas, which asks supporters to send in their festive selfies and join CITC in its efforts at the most wonderful time of year.

We have been making a difference in the local community for 30 years and this yuletide season is no exception.

#BlueChristmas will see us give even more back to the community by supporting festive projects, making donations to local community centres and thanking our incredible fans for their ongoing support.

City’s clash with Arsenal on Sunday 18 December is the ‘#BlueChristmas matchday’ and marks the culmination of the festive fun.

Fans will have the opportunity to get their hands on some early Christmas presents, with plenty of great prizes up for grabs.

So, how can you get involved?

As brilliantly demonstrated by Gael Clichy and Fabian Delph, we’re asking fans to send in your selfies wearing your blue Santa hat with pride.

This can be at the match, from your sofa or from wherever you are cheering the boys on from around the world and the best snap will win a special City prize.

First of all, you’ll need to buy your very own Manchester City Santa hat and once you’ve taken your picture, send it to @CITCTweets on Twitter, using the hashtag #BlueChristmas.

Buy your Manchester City Christmas hat now.

If you’re attending City v Arsenal make sure you wear your blue Santa hat and don’t leave your seat at half time as we’ll be picking out three fans on our ‘Santa Cam’, who’ll have the chance to win some amazing prizes, such as Etihad flights and a Nike goody-bag.

There’ll be plenty of festive fun going on beforehand too, including a Santa’s grotto, face painting and a CITC themed selfie booth.

The best picture will become the face of next year’s #BlueChristmas campaign so the stakes are high!

We’ve enjoyed a fantastic 30 years working with fans and we look forward to celebrating Christmas with you all.
