Next stop on the Heart of the City world tour takes us to France. We want France-based City fans to share with us their congressional places of MCFC worship!
To celebrate the fans of MCFC that are based around the world we want to discover those places at the heart of different world cities where supporters congregate to connect with the club. These are special places where on matchdays, the team are cheered on by fans as they would if they were at the stadium. They act as community outposts, where City supporters abroad or on holiday can still connect with their beloved Blues.
To recognise this we, in partnership with Umbro, will be producing 20 limited edition ‘Heart of the City’ fan plaques which we will send out to different bars/social clubs who we feel are the heart of their city.
So far the NRG Bar in Abu Dhabi, The Mad Hatter in NYC and Cheers Bar in Sydney (home of the Sydney Blues - pictured) are all proudly displaying their plaques. Now it's the turn for French Blues to share with us their stories and photos of where they feel is deserving of being recognised as the next Heart of the City.
Please email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org marking your email 'Heart of the City - France' and we'll announce the winner on mcfc.co.uk soon!
