Melbourne City v Manchester City to be broadcast live
The historic encounter – the first between two City Football Group clubs – will see John van’t Schip’s A-League outfit take on Manuel Pellegrini’s Premier League giants on the Gold Coast this Saturday.
The match comes just days before the Manchester outfit kicks-off their International Champions Cup campaign against Real Madrid and AS Roma.
Manchester City arrived in Australia last week with a star-studded line-up including Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri and captain Vincent Kompany for a 9-day camp.
Melbourne City FC CEO Scott Munn said the broadcast was a positive outcome for fans of both City clubs across Australia and in the UK.
“The interest in Manchester City’s visit has been fantastic and since we announced this match the local community has embraced it and ticket sales have been going well,” Munn said.
“To be able to give our members and fans in Melbourne and fans in the UK access to the broadcast, with the help of FOX SPORTS, is something that we’re really excited about.
