Escape to City!
On Saturday 2nd November, 18 players from the Man City Military Veterans team will do a 23 mile tab with weighted Bergans (walking with weighted back packs for you non-military types!) from the site of legendary Man City goalkeeper Bert Trautmann’s old POW camp in Ashton-in-Makerfield to the Etihad stadium, via the site of City’s old ground at Maine Road.
The players will be taking on this huge challenge to raise funds for three fantastic causes; The Royal British Legion, Moving Forces and City in the Community.
Videos and photos from the challenge will be shown on the big screens at the Etihad as part of the build up to City’s home match against Southampton. Finally, the players will walk onto the pitch to remove a giant poppy from the centre circle just before kick-off to complete Man City’s official Remembrance Day event.
