Shirt logo will be handed over to Cityzens Giving For Recovery campaign for match against Arsenal
Reigning English champions Manchester City will wear special shirts on Wednesday in their match against Arsenal in recognition of a Covid-19 relief fund campaign set up by City Football Group.
The shirts, which usually bear the Etihad logo, will be handed over to the ‘Cityzens Giving For Recovery’ campaign for the match, which heralds the resumption of action in the English Premier League after a Covid-19 enforced suspension.
Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group said: “Giving back to the community is a priority for Etihad, and a commitment we take seriously as an organisation. As we navigate our way through a new world, recovery is paramount to us getting back on our feet, and restarting again, stronger than before.”
The ‘Cityzens Giving For Recovery’ campaign will focus on providing support directly to nine recovery-linked projects around the world, fundraising, the use of club facilities, and resources. Each of the nine clubs within City Football Group, staff, players, coaches and fans will all be involved, providing support in various capacities.
Omar Berrada, chief operating officer, Manchester City, added: “We are hugely grateful to our partners at Etihad for enabling us to use our most visible and significant asset to promote Cityzens Giving For Recovery. As ever, it demonstrates the enduring depth and value of our partnership.
“At a time when so many around the world have suffered enormous loss, we are proud to be introducing our new campaign to help our communities around the world get back on their feet.”
