To celebrate Manchester City’s record-breaking 2018/19 season, the men’s and women’s trophies are currently on a global Trophy Tour, presented by Etihad Airways, and will travel to the UAE next month.
Manchester City silverware will be in Town Square, Yas Mall on Saturday 7th September. Club legend, Micah Richards, who played right back for Manchester City from 2005 – 2014, making 246 appearances and was part of the Premier League-winning squad in 2012, will accompany the trophies in Abu Dhabi for a series of exciting fan activities.
One of the highlights of the Trophy Tour, supported locally by Etisalat and Rexona, is an immersive fan experience that is modelled to look like the home dressing room at the Etihad Stadium, giving fans the chance to live the excitement of a City match-day.
As well as the opportunity to take photos with the six trophies and win prizes, fans will also be able to create their own walk out video to experience what it’s like to be a Manchester City player.
The tour will also celebrate City’s new partnership with PUMA, allowing fans the chance to get up and close to the popular new kits, launched last month and inspired by the city of Manchester.
Nuria Tarre, Chief Marketing Officer at City Football Group, commented: “We’re excited to have the men’s and women’s trophies on tour at the same time – this is a football first and we can’t wait to celebrate our historic success with fans around the world.
“The tour will bring an authentic City experience to every city, allowing those fans who would never get to travel to Manchester the chance to experience the club they love closer than ever and right in their hometowns.”
Yasser Al Yousef, Vice President Commercial Partnerships at Etihad Airways, said: “As proud partners for 10 years, Etihad Airways is delighted to once again celebrate the success of Manchester City and marking such a formidable season by visiting fans all over the world. Being title partner of the trophy tour is a perfect reflection of the airline’s goal to promote global connectivity through football.”
The Trophy Tour is a part of a global celebration after the Club made football history by becoming the first English club to lift six trophies across both its men’s and women’s teams in the same season
