Clubs from City Football Group will come together for the first time on Saturday (13th June) to host a Group-wide EA SPORTS FIFA20 challenge.
The CFG FIFA Challenge will see pro-FIFA players and esports teams alongside footballers from men's and women's teams around the Group take to the virtual pitch to test their skills and entertain fans.
With on-the-pitch action limited due to the coronavirus pandemic, eight clubs – Manchester City, New York City FC, Melbourne City FC, Yokohama F. Marinos, Girona FC, Montevideo City Torque, Sichuan Jiuniu FC and Mumbai City FC – will compete in a series of matches and gaming challenges.
The challenge will also give fans watching the opportunity to donate to their club's chosen charity, supporting COVID19 recovery efforts in their local area.
Manchester City will see Sergio Aguero take on Oleksandr Zinchenko, Georgia Stanway battle it out against teammate Ellie Roebuck and City's pro esports player Ryan Pessoa play City legend Joleon Lescott. City is also teaming up with its partners FaZe Clan, the world's unmatched leader in competitive esports and pop culture, to see their player FaZe Tass go head-to-head with City's Shellzz.
