Manchester City Women will stream their first UEFA Women’s Champions League game live on Facebook, thanks to the support of Official Club Partner, Nissan.
The Academy Stadium is the venue for this landmark clash and the Blues will be hoping home advantage can help them strike a first leg blow before they travel to Russia next Wednesday.
A competition debut for Steph Houghton and team, Zvezda have European pedigree, reaching the final in 2009 and winning all of their previous Round of 32 ties.
A record crowd watched City clinch the FA WSL title and they’ll be counting on the brilliant support of the home fans on Thursday, but don’t worry if you can’t make it to the Academy Stadium.
Nissan – who are also a UEFA Women’s Champions League partner - are committed to providing fans with unexpected access and exciting experiences and will do just that, for this, the third MCWFC game to feature live on the Club’s Facebook account.
Giving Blues from around the world the opportunity to follow all the drama of a European night, fans can tune in from 6.45pm as Alistair Mann and CityTV’s Kelly O’Donnell cover all the pre-match news and views, before the game gets underway at 7pm.
With 4.5 million likes on the Man City Women Facebook page , captain Houghton is pleased the Club’s global fan base will be able to follow the big game live.
She said: I’m delighted that Manchester City fans from around the world will have the opportunity to watch us live on Thursday in our Champions League debut.
"We hope to put on a great show for them!”
