There really are no excuses for failing to attend City’s UEFA Youth League quarter-final tie against Benfica.
We’re throwing open the gates of Hyde FC’s Ewen Fields on Tuesday 18 March to offer free entry for all supporters.
With a place in the last four of the competition up for grabs, we want as many of you as possible to come along and lend your support to Patrick Vieira’s under-19 selection.
City qualified for the quarter-finals of the competition with their impressive 1-0 win away at Atletico Madrid last month.
Check out City's Road to the Last Eight.
If they win this tie with the Portuguese giants, Vieira’s men will travel to Nyon in Switzerland to contest for a place in the final of the inaugural competition, dubbed the “mini Champions League”.
Those who turn up also will have the opportunity to win a number of amazing prizes, including a City shirt signed by the first-team squad, a City shirt signed by The Wanted’s Max George, a signed football, one of three copies of Xbox One game Plants versus Zombies, VIP Hospitality tickets to a first-team game and much, much more.
We're also happy to announce that the first 100 fans through the turnstiles will be given a free City scarf and we'll be giving away 20 Capital One Cup winners t-shirts to the crowd before kick-off.
Stewards will be on hand outside of the ground on the night to hand out free tickets to the game on a first-come-first-served basis , so make sure you get there early to guarantee your place at this historic occasion.
We’ll have video and text previews in the build-up to the game, as well as our usual Twitter updates, match report and match highlights here on mcfc.co.uk.
Kick-off is at 7pm.
Don’t miss it!
