As part of the clubs global community work, they will soon be launching this year’s Cityzens Giving campaign with a new project in Mumbai.

To celebrate the start of the campaign, where City fans decide how the club distribute £400,000 of charitable funding to youth-led community football projects around the world, they will be taking the six trophies into one of the local communities in Mumbai which will benefit from the project over the next three years.
