The Manchester City Elite Development Squad will travel to Dublin this Wednesday, July 29th to take on St Patrick's Athletic.
Team manager Patrick Vieira, a veteran of Man City, Internazionale, Juventus and Arsenal, brings his charges to Richmond Park to take on the Super Saints, managed by Liam Buckley who has his own impressive European pedigree, having played in Belgium, Spain and Switzerland during an illustrious career.
Everyone through the turnstiles on the night will be entered into a raffle to win a signed Manchester City jersey and one lucky person will be going home with a sky blue shirt bearing the signatures of some potential starts of the future.
The last Premier League side to have faced the Saints in Richmond Park were a Chelsea XI in 2009 that featured the likes of Fabio Borini, while a Tottenham Hotspur side with Gareth Bale, Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane amongst their ranks were visitors to Inchicore in 2007.
Two days after the Man City friendly St Pats take on Galway United in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
The Saints have enjoyed six straight wins in the league and, following the disappointment of their UEFA Europa League exit, are keen to continue their impressive domestic form in order to finish in the top three to qualify for European football again next year.
"The friendly against Man City will be the perfect opportunity to prepare for the league match against Galway, and hopefully we can entice a few people down to Richmond Park who have never been before" said Liam Buckley.
"Patrick Vieira has assembled an exciting squad of players but we have our own stars of the future here too, so I'm really looking forward to what should be a great occasion".
