The build-up to Saturday’s game in City Square is set to be a knockout with a special appearance from Ricky Hatton.
The former world champion and City fan, who defended his title at the Etihad Stadium in May 2008, will be Hugh and Natalie’s special guest on Live From City Square, but the rest of what’s on also packs a punch.
Lee Crooks, stalwart of the Blues in the 1990s, will also be along talk about his forthcoming tour of duty with the RAF in Afghanistan. There’ll be signed shirts and merchandise to be won in the EA Sports Bluezone and Fanzone Danny will be on the lookout for unsuspecting fans who could win hospitality upgrades for a future home game.
Danny will also be looking for your match predictions for the big screens, and you’ll be able to see the team arrive and a quick interview with a player as they enter the stadium.
We’ll also show your predictions from Twitter on screen, and don’t forget that after the game Vincent Kompany will be answering questions from fans on both Twitter and Facebook in a unique live interview. Send your questions to @vincentkompany, using the hashtag #askvincent, or Vincent’s Facebook page.
The bars and cafes in City Square will be open for business before and after the match, which kicks off at 5.30pm. This week’s tasty special is sausage and mash, and there’s the usual array of mouth-watering pies.
So box clever and go the distance with us in City Square this week!
