EDS & Academy

Watch EDS v Brighton live on CITY+

Watch our Premier League 2 clash against Brighton in full with a CITY+ subscription.

Our Elite Development Squad (EDS) welcome Brighton to the Academy Stadium on Friday 17 December, with kick-off scheduled for 19:00 (UK).

Victory for Brian Barry-Murphy’s youngsters could see us move as high as second in the table as we continue our defence of a maiden PL2 title.


Our last home match ended in a thrilling 3-2 triumph over Leeds at the end of November, with a stoppage time strike from Cole Palmer securing all three points.

Friday’s clash with Brighton promises to be just as exciting, with the Seagulls just one place and one point behind our EDS heading into the tie.

The broadcast will get under way at 18:55, complete with live commentary to guide you through all the action.
