ICP Networks and Etihad Airways are backing Manchester City’s Premiership bid – and showing their support for the Community.
The two businesses have been showing their support all season to the club’s CITC program and had the opportunity to celebrate with a handful of Manchester schools and some of the first team squad including Alvaro Negredo, Martin Demichelis, Fernandinho and Pablo Zabaleta.
Youngsters from Ravensbury, St Edmunds, Sandlands Primary and junior football club Abraham Moss joined forces with the four City stars as a curtain raiser to the Premiership climax.
They tested the CITCs new ‘Game Fame’ equipment followed by a few games of Futsal – much to the delight of the children.
Ethiad Airways have co-funded the Game Fame and ICP Networks have provided a brand new Van required to transport the equipment to schools and community groups across Greater Manchester as part of the football roadshow programme.
Negredo, said: “It’s great to meet local schools and see the smiles on their faces as they play football. The Game Fame will be a great edition to Manchester.”
Mike Green, head of CITC, said: “We’re looking to take football to as many young people throughout Manchester as possible so it’s great that the players have got involved today to inspire even more people to get involved. City in the Community are empowering lives through football and Etihad Airways support will be invaluable in helping us continue.”
