Manchester City took the chance ahead of their match with Arsenal to show off a new, bespoke jersey that replaces Etihad’s logo with the ‘Cityzens Giving For Recovery’ campaign.

A 12-month campaign begun by City Football group and Manchester City, Cityzens Giving For Recovery’ aims to help communities affected by the coronavirus get back on their feet.

Linked to 9 recovery-lead projects around the world, the campaign will focus on fund raising, the use of club facilities and resources. Each of the nine clubs within City Football Group, staff, players, coaches and fans will all be involved, providing support in various capacities.

Manchester City have already donated close to £1m to the COVID-19 relief effort and are now aiming to deliver an additional £1m via the Cityzens project.
