Manchester City’s charity, City in the Community (CITC), will be celebrated before and during the Club’s historic FA Cup Final tie against Manchester United on 25 May.

The players’ changing room at Wembley will be dressed in messages of encouragement and drawings, all done by Manchester city youth during CITC sessions.

The City in the Community logo will also feature on the back of FA Cup final shirts to help raise awareness of the charity, with a potential audience of up to 500 million viewers globally.

The club has already featured the charity’s logo on shirts in this season’s Champions League campaign, and in last season’s FA Cup final.

Signed FA Cup Final match-issued shirts will be auctioned off in aid of CITC to empower healthier lives through football, more information about this will be released in the coming week.

Furthermore, CITC will have a presence before the match at Box Park, where fans will be able to see what activities the charity is currently delivering across various platforms.

Commenting on the celebrations, CEO of City in the Community, Michael Geary, said:

“The 2023/24 season has already been such an exciting and successful campaign so far, for the Club and for City in the Community.

“It is great to see the Club’s support for us on all fronts, especially as we head into such a historic match seen by so many people.

“Having CITC presence in the Wembley changing rooms, and having our logo on the shirt is so important as we look to keep increasing awareness of the charity.

“I’d like to express our sincere thanks to Manchester City Football Club for supporting our charity and its participants throughout this season.”
