Manchester City Football Club is one of the world’s leading football clubs with ambitious plans for growth. It is a major employer in the area. The football club has built a deep and lasting relationship with the communities across Manchester since the late 1800s, when the club that became MCFC was founded by the Connell family as part of the wider social offer “to combat worthlessness, antisocial behaviour and crime”. Over the past decade, it has re-established firm roots within East Manchester and the ‘City in the Community’ programme continues to be recognised as one of the best sports-related community programmes in the country.
