Manchester City Link Up With Council & University

Tue 15th Jul 2014 | Marketing & PR

Manchester City have linked up with two Manchester institutions to announce a 10 year partnership designed to enhance the sporting and educational legacy in the city.

Manchester City FC (MCFC), Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and Manchester City Council (MCC) will work together for the next decade across a variety of programmes.

The wide ranging partnership will allow the organisations to share expertise in education, CSR, community relations, commercial knowledge and infrastructure development. The relationship builds on their existing strengths and will create a unique platform for elite sport development and community engagement.

Work will begin immediately to design new educational pathways for male and female City players and to develop career development programmes for MMU students. Projects in other areas will begin in the coming months.

Professor John Brooks, MMU Vice-Chancellor said: “This is an exciting relationship which reflects our shared values in the communities that we serve and build on of vision of a city of sport, health and opportunity.

“Working with an organisation like Manchester City FC will expand the university’s potential audience and allow both local and international students opportunities to improve their skills and employment outlook.”

Jon Stemp, Chief Infrastructure Officer at City Football Group, said: “MCFC, MMU and MCC share a common set of values and priorities, which is what makes this partnership so special.

“We all believe in the value of education, as evidenced in our academy programmes and work with the Connell College, in developing good people, and in bringing world class sport to our communities.

“Manchester City has been deeply rooted in the city for more than 120 years, and the Club’s foundation for 27 years. This unique relationship allows us to continue and grow that commitment with our trusted partners.”

Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, said: “The contribution to the city made by Manchester City FC and by Manchester Metropolitan University is of great significance.

“We look forward to seeing this long term partnership build on the existing links between some of our world-class organisations and the communities that they serve.

"Manchester is a unique tourist destination, famous for its creativity, culture and sporting heritage and this agreement will further strengthen the city’s reputation as an international sports hub.”
