MCFC Fans Foodbank Support have announced that City fans have donated over 2,200kg of food and sanitary products on matchdays this season, while also donating thousands of pounds through matchday collections, fundraising events and online.

The group – found standing under their gazebo at the start of Sir Howard Bernstein Way before 17 home weekend matches at the Etihad this season – have taken donations this year that equal 600 days of emergency food for the most vulnerable people in Manchester.
