Christmas jumpers come early at Manchester City

November 3 – For many Manchester City fans Christmas came early with their 3-1 Champions League win over Barcelona earlier this week. Now the club is kicking off its festive season with a number of promos and initiatives designed to engage their growing global fanbase.

The club is asking fans to vote for their favourite side and taking part in a range of festive competitions both online and at the Etihad Stadium on matchdays. The winning team will be announced at 10AM on Christmas Eve and everyone who has voted for that team will be entered into a prize draw to present the champions with the inaugural Manchester City Christmas trophy.

The club has also launched an official Christmas photo – but this year with a video twist. The photo and video feature stars and legends wearing City’s annual Christmas jumpers as they face off in a snowball fight refereed by manager Pep Guardiola.

Representing team #CitySanta are Kevin de Bruyne, Steph Houghton, Mike Summerbee and Willy Caballero, whilst Vincent Kompany, Toni Duggan, Paul Dickov and Angelino make up team #CityElf.

And it wouldn’t be Christmas if there wasn’t an opportunity to buy and give.

The Christmas jumpers representing each team are available online and at all official Manchester City Stores. As part of this year’s Cityzens Giving campaign, the Club will donate an additional £5 for every jumper purchased to local community football projects in Manchester, run by City in the Community.

Have to get one of those jumpers.
