City Football Group Launches Cityzens Giving For Recovery Campaign

CFG has been supporting the emergency global COVID-19 response for the past three months, through almost £1,000,000 of donations, in-kind support and the loaning of facilities.

With the Premier League season preparing to restart tomorrow when City play host to Arsenal, CFG is now aiming to deliver a minimum of another £1,000,000 of funding and support through its Cityzens Giving for Recovery initiative. Manchester City will therefore wear a special logo on the shirts instead of the logo of Etihad Airways.

Ferran Soriano, Chief Executive of City Football Group, said: “Front line workers around the world have heroically responded to the immediate threat of COVID-19. At CFG, we have been privileged to play our own small part in helping to address that immediate threat.

“Now is the time for us to look forward, committing to meeting our responsibility to help our communities recover. For the first time, we are harnessing the global resources of our nine clubs, our entire network of offices, staff, players and coaches to focus our efforts on recovery. This multi-faceted campaign is going to use our expertise, our facilities, our platform and our voice to help people and our communities to heal and recover."
