Football fans and families are in for a real treat this Sunday 14th January when the match between Abu Dhabi owned Manchester City FC against another leading English Premier League side, Liverpool FC, will be screened for free at Zayed Sports City.
The evening is a whole family event with activities running before the match and during half time, including the chance to win a Manchester City FC shirt signed by Manchester City star and England international Kyle Walker. Organisers have created a fun packed family event which includes the chanmce for fans to watch the match between these two English Premier League giants.
Manchester City FC are regular visitors to the UAE capital and often do events where fans can watch their heroes in action, and sometimes even get to meet with them. One star who recently visited the UAE is French international defender Benjamin Mendy, who took the opportunity to meet with fans. “It was a great experience for me, the place here is wonderful and the whole show was absolutely beautiful. It was great to look around Abu Dhabi. As a Muslim it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and I haven’t been disappointed, it was amazing!” said Mendy on his recent visit. “The passion was really good and I got to have a chat with fans, take some pictures and have a joke. It was nice to have them ask about my recovery from injury as well.”
The whole fun filed family event is totally free to attend, including the match screening itself and those wanting to attend can register at https://www.mancity.com/campaigns/official-screening-event
