We are searching for the identity of seven sets of City fans the Club has earmarked for a special prize ahead of the new Premier League season.
We want all supporters to help find the stars of seven YouTube videos, each of which captured the incredible emotion, passion and relief endured by millions of Manchester City fans worldwide during the final moments of last season’s Premier League campaign.
As Sergio Agüero rewrote the footballing history books with his 94th minute winner in the climax to the most thrilling Premier League campaign in history, an army of City supporters reacted jubilantly inside the Etihad Stadium, in their homes, and in bars and pubs around the globe. With countless YouTube videos uploaded by City fans to catalogue the range of emotions felt that day, we have picked out eight favourites for a special reward.
The seven City YouTube Heroes are to be invited to an exclusive VIP dinner in the Chairman’s Lounge at the Etihad Stadium, joined by a host of former City VIPs on the eve of Manchester City’s first Premier League fixture in defence of the title.
They will then be invited to attend Manchester City’s match against Southampton on August 19th as the Club’s guests of honour.
Nick Becker, Head of Event Production at Manchester City said:
"The last match of the season was an emotional rollercoaster. Now that we have had time to reflect, enjoy and celebrate the result, we want to invite those people to share their stories from that momentous day."
Supporters can watch each of the videos via City’s YouTube and Facebook channels, and can alert the Club to the identity of each of the City Heroes on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag: #Cityhero or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
