City v Chelsea: Academy Stadium event information

Sunday's huge Barclays Women's Super League encounter is almost upon us...

City welcome Chelsea to the Academy Stadium for an eagerly-anticipated 12:40 (UK) kick-off.

Neither side have tasted defeat in the league since September, with just two points separating them ahead of the action.

And in front of a sell-out crowd, it's sure to be an atmosphere befitting the grand occasion.

However, there's plenty going on around the Academy Stadium beyond the action on the pitch, with a number of activities to get involved in across the day.

On arrival, be sure to approach one of our playmakers and put your name down to be one of our starting XI flagbearers, who welcome the team out for kick-off!

Elsewhere, the Battle of the Bands competition, which has been running across the season at selected home fixtures, reaches its exciting conclusion this weekend.

The Facades and New Divide will go head-to-head to be crowned our first ever Battle of the Bands Champion, with both performing in front of Heart of the City before the game.

It's up to the fans to decide who will win - and you can do so by heading to www.mancity.com/botb. The victors will then be announced at half-time.

As always, our West Stand Fanzone will provide you with a chance to put your football skills to the test for the hour before kick-off and at half-time.

Youngsters can also get their face painted in City colours by one of our roaming face painter, while you can also get a selfie with the Moonies, who will be around at pre-match and half-time!
