On Thursday, Manchester City Women jetted off to Abu Dhabi to embark of a warm-weather pre-season training camp.

The Blues are working hard in the sunshine as preparations intensify for the new FA WSL season, which kicks off in March.

Thanks to Aabar's support, MCWFC are also helping to deliver a series of football clinics to the UAE's under-14 women’s team together with the UAE Women’s Football Committee.

In addition, medical and sports science practitioners from the UAE are shadowing MCWFC's experts in a bid to further study skills and techniques to benefit their own female athletes, facilitated through the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Sports Academy.

MCWFC have been joined by sister Club, Melbourne City Women, and the two sides will lock horns in an exhibition game at 2pm GMT on Wednesday - with live coverage provided on both teams' online channels.

Here are some of the best snaps of MCWFC training in the Emirates, courtesy of club photographer Victoria Haydn.
