Ferrostaal, one of City’s official global partners, are to provide eight hospitality tickets to “Blues in Business” (BIB) for Sunday’s match against Birmingham City on Sunday.
This meeting of the BIB members will be the official launch of the charity organisation, concentrating on specific projects in the Manchester area.
The BIB members are like minded City fans and have started their activities already.
They have already raised money for Challenge4Change, a charity in Trafford that provides a fantastic facility for children and young adults with varying degrees of ability and disability in order to get them exercising together. BIB has also raised money for Jump Space, a charity in Stockport that caters specifically for children with Autism and Learning Difficulties.
Overseas the organisation is aiming to provide a mini-bus for Sierra Leone. This is a project undertaken by the Centenary Supporters Association (backed by City), and looking to raise a substantial amount of money to enable football to be developed in the impoverished country, with City at the helm.
Ferrostaal AG, Essen, is a global provider of industrial services in plant construction and engineering.
