There’s only one place to be on the January 18 - City Sunday!
To celebrate the official launch of our new Academy Stadium in the heart of the City Football Academy facility, the Club is offering lucky Seasoncard holders and Arsenal ticket holders the chance to take part in a full day of City football.
For the first time in our history, both the men’s First Team and Elite Development Squad will play consecutive games at the Etihad Campus on the same day.
At 12pm, Patrick Vieira’s men will take on German outfit Schalke in the Premier League’s International Cup at the new Academy Stadium.
