Manchester City Women’s Champions League Scarf Trail

Thu 20th Apr 2017 | Marketing & PR

More than 300 Manchester City Women scarves have been draped, hung and hidden throughout the city centre of Manchester, as their highly anticipated UEFA Women’s Champions League clash against Olympique Lyonnais this coming Saturday draws near.

An array of Manchester City Women v Lyon scarves bearing both Club’s colours and crest have been placed in busy locations, encouraging the public to take a scarf and show their support for the Manchester City Women’s team.

This is their first year in the Champions’ League and made history by qualifying for the semi-final, adding to their success on the pitch having won both the 2016 FA WSL and Continental Tyres Cup already this season.

Scarves have been left in a host of city centre locations including Market Street, Victoria, Picadilly, Northern Quarter and St Ann’s Square. Fans that find the scarves are encouraged to take one, wear it with pride and share a picture on social media using #CityvLyon.

Speaking about the campaign ahead of the game, Manchester City Women’s team Captain and England International star Steph Houghton said: “Saurday’s game against Lyon is set to be one of our toughest to date, so it’s incredible to see so much support for us across Manchester.

“People often underestimate the power of fan support in spurring the team on. Just knowing that everyone is behind us and helping us achieve our European dream is definitely increasing our desire to win this weekend.”

The match takes place at the Academy Stadium on Saturday 22nd April at 2pm.

Tickets are priced at £6 adults and £4 for children (under 16). All tickets are available from www.mancity.com/cityvlyon
