Fan of the week: Mike Cunningham

Whilst on the club's recent North American summer tour we met loads of City fans old and new who, one way or another, have found themselves following the Blues from afar.

Therefore, it seems fitting that our first MCFC Fan of the Week is Mike Cunningham from Minneapolis whose impressive combination of City support, patriotism and lack of personal safety won him a signed away shirt following our US fan photo contest.

Part of an increasing number of Midwest-based Blues, Mike even arranged his family holiday around the club's preseason tour to ensure he, his wife and son witnessed City in the flesh for the first time.

Seeing the lads in Los Angeles is a memory I will never forget

Mike admits to having no real ties to Manchester as a place but puts his love for the Blues down to the club's expanding global profile and dedication to its fans.

"I wish I could tell you my story was more elaborate, like my grandparents grew up in Manchester or my four older brothers support City. I just want to follow a world class team. It's really a testimony of how Manchester City is becoming recognized as a premier International club."
