We are the Heart of the City and our fans and our players are at the heart of the club.
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. We’ll be presenting a plaque regularly so keep watching mcfc.co.uk to see if we need nominations in your part of the world.
Following last week’s call out for France-based Blues to get in touch with their suggestions, we are delighted to announce that The Bombardier in Paris will join Cheers Bar in Sydney, the NRG Bar in Abu Dhabi and The Mad Hatter in New York by receiving its own Heart of the City plaque.
The ‘Bomb’ as it is affectionately known by the locals proclaims to be the only real English pub in Paris and is set right in the heart of the beauty and historic ambience of the city’s world famous Latin Quarter.
We were inundated with suggestions for The Bombardier by a dedicated group of City fans who frequently congregate there to cheer on the lads as well as those supporters who have discovered the bar whilst on holiday in The City of Love.
We hope that by receiving this Heart of the City recognition, City fans in Paris will be able to show even more love for MCFC there on matchdays!
