We are delighted to announce that City in the City is back for the 2016/17 season
The first event of the new campaign takes place before the Blues face Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 2 October, at White Hart Lane, with City Football Group Chief Commercial Officer and former New York City Football Club President, Tom Glick, confirmed as guest speaker.
Now in its third consecutive year, the Club’s series of behind-the-scenes events created specifically for City fans based in London will be bigger and better than before.
These unique occasions, held before away games in the capital, provide fans with a behind-the-scenes insight into how the Club is run, as told by those responsible for its success on and off the pitch
Last year’s events included a Q&A with cult hero Shaun Goater, on board a Thames riverboat prior to the Chelsea game at Stamford Bridge, while another Club legend, Paul Dickov, took to the stage with Brian Marwood at a restaurant in North London before City took on Arsenal.
The itinerary for the Spurs event will include:
- 10am – Welcome drinks and canapes
- 10.45am – Q&A with special guest Tom Glick
- 11.30am – Networking and office tours
- 12.30pm – Private coach transport to White Hart Lane
- 2.15pm – Kick-off
- 4pm – Full time
Commenting on the new season’s events, Ian Rickwood, Chief Executive Officer for Henley Investments, said:
“Our sponsorship of City in the City over the 2016/17 season will once again provide Henley with significant branding opportunities and a year-round window to engage with Manchester City’s corporate fan-base.
"Our partnership over the last year has been a highly successful one and has provided a unique forum in which to meet new contacts, entertain guests and enjoy watching some of the world’s greatest players.”
Gary Iddon, General Manager for the North West, Virgin Trains, added: “City in the City exceeded all expectations last season, our discounted ticket offer and additional Express Charters to key matches are proving a big hit with fans in the south.
"It was great to see so many new faces on our services making it an easy decision to continue our relationship with the football club. We look forward to welcoming more fans onboard as the new season unfolds.”
The pre-match event will take place in the City Football Group HQ, 14th Floor, 10 Brock Street, Regents Place, London NW1 3FG.
