Come and have your photo taken with the Capital One Cup trophy at BT City Square ahead of the Wigan clash!
Don’t miss out on the chance to get a memorable snap before watching the Blues bid to reach Wembley for a second time this season…
Head Coach of NYCFC, Jason Kreis, will also be on stage to chat about the club’s exciting plans for the future as they begin to take shape. Three of our under-21s, Marcos Lopes, Devante Cole and George Glendon with assistant manager Simon Davies, will also be on hand to tell you all about the amazing season they are enjoying under Patrick Vieira, chasing League and Cup success. They face Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night, so why not come down and see the City stars of the future…
Plus, City fan and Shameless actor, David Threlfall will be chatting about all things Manchester and the Blues.
As well as all that, we’ve laid on our usual treat of live music to get you all warmed up for the big clash. MDNGHT will be live, fresh from their sold out gig at Manchester’s Academy 3. Their unique style of house has won them plenty of fans – the band’s latest track made Single of the Week on Radio 1 and Radio 1xtra. The live performances are always entertaining, blending the atmosphere of a music gig with a DJ set, so make sure you come down and check them out.
Manchester-based group The Rainband are also returning to BT City Square for a third time by popular demand. The band are building up to their upcoming UK tour, promoting new EP Sirens, so come down and see what all the fuss is about!
Plus, we’ll be on the look out for one lucky fan to take part in our half time competition on the pitch. Play our Hawkeye target game and you could win One Direction tickets!
Don’t forget to head round to West Reception for even more entertainment. There’s a pop-up retail booth where you can get your hands on our special Capital One Cup Winners’ T-shirt – as voted for by the fans! Take part in our competition and you could even win one.
There’s also interviews with former Blues Joe Corrigan and Ian Brightwell, and we’ll be chatting to a first team player when they arrive at the Stadium.
However, make sure you’re in your seat in plenty of time to see the Capital One Cup trophy brought onto the pitch ahead of kick-off by legends from the 1976 win – Tony Book, Tommy Booth, Joe Corrigan and Peter Barnes.
With so much going on, you won’t want to miss out so make sure you get down to the stadium early to sample everything on offer!
