Expo 2020 branding will appear across the Etihad Stadium and City Football Academy training facilities, as well as featuring on City’s content and digital platforms. Expo 2020 is also an official partner of the Manchester City e-sports team and features on the front of the e-sports kit.
As the show’s official premier partner, Etisalat is connecting a whole new world at Expo 2020 Dubai, and inviting fans on social media to come and see the trophies.
Manchester City is hosting daily football sessions at the Expo site, led by dedicated City coaching staff who apply the same training methodology used by the teams on the training pitches in Manchester.
