Welcome to this week’s Manchester City Women Official Supporters’ Club update.
You may think that the close season is quiet time, I know I used to think that. Here at the OSC we have been as busy as ever.
This week has seen our members return from the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 and to be fair, we commend them on their devotion shown and endurance that rivals that of the Lionesses themselves with the mileage which they have covered. They are all phenomenal supporters who we are extremely proud to have as members of our wonderful supporters’ club.
Last week saw the release of the full set of FA Women’s Super League fixtures for the new season. We already knew that we would be opening our campaign with the small matter of a home Manchester derby in the Etihad Stadium, but now we know the rest too. Early season trips to our good friends at Reading plus a short journey to Everton will be exciting away days for us. We are sure that the group will be there in large numbers as ever, just as we will be throughout the season. All we need now are our FA Women’s Continental League Cup fixtures and to learn of our UEFA Women’s Champions League opponents and we will be raring to go.
We also welcomed Aoife Mannion to the club last week. She is a player who has always impressed us when we have played against her and we are really pleased to see her sign for City. I will look at all our new signings in more detail next week.
Supporters’ club-wise we continue to prepare for our upcoming season. We have liaised with the club and they have kindly reserved us an area in the Etihad Stadium for season ticket holders to sit together for the aforementioned United match. This week is an extremely busy one for our over-worked secretary Jayne as we have opened up our annual OSC renewals process for next season. We are the
#OriginalBiggestBest supporters’ club out there, we are proud of that and we intend it to stay that way!
Anyone who wishes to join up for the new season would be very welcome, just contact us via E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the application form. We would love to welcome you onboard as we have so much planned for the coming season.
Enjoy the sunshine and I’ll be back again next week.
