CITY OF MANCHESTER STADIUM TO BE FILLED WITH FANS MEMORIES

- Fans placed at the centre of a new initiative to celebrate the club's history -

Manchester City FC is proud to announce it has this week launched a campaign to fill the City of Manchester Stadium with fans' memories of their first City game. Entitled My First City Game, this initiative has been developed by Chief Executive Garry Cook to put the supporters at the very centre of the City of Manchester Stadium, and celebrate the history of the club through the eyes of the fans.

Fans of all ages are encouraged to submit their memories via the MCFC official website, where they will permanently reside in a specially developed interactive forum. The club will review all submissions and select the most compelling memories to develop into a bright and vibrant collage that will fill the concourses throughout the entire stadium.

My First City Game has also been developed to encourage new fans to submit their experiences following their first visit to City of Manchester Stadium, or another ground to see Manchester City. It is hoped that submissions from first time supporters will be made for every home game, through which fans continue to write the club's history in coming years.

Garry Cook, MCFC Executive Chairman, said "The fans have always been the heartbeat of this club, and their support makes Manchester City the most special club in the world. We want to look to the future without ever forgetting the past, and it's only right that we do this using the memories of those most important to the club. The City of Manchester Stadium is a fantastic facility; My First Game will introduce even more personality and life to it, and help make it feel like the spiritual home of our club."

Richard Dunne, MCFC Club Captain, said "We are nothing without our fans. The new owners have really impressed me since they took charge of this club and I`m delighted they recognise the role our supporters play, clearly they are very much in their plans. My First City Game is a great idea and these memories will make the City of Manchester Stadium feel even more like home."

Submissions can be made at My First City Game and include the following:-

- A quote describing your first experience of a Manchester City game: what it felt like, where it was, who you were with, your memories of not only the match but the whole experience.

- Photographs, ticket stubs, newspaper clippings, or any memorabilia that can be scanned and uploaded on the website.

- An email address so the club may contact you.

First magical mystery experience for me was as a nipper versus Everton at Maine Road in the 70's. I think they were in yellow and blue and we beat them. I just remember being mesmerised!
