​Man City launch football skills app for US market

Manchester City has launched SkillCity, presented by Nexen, a new interactive app that will help develop the talents of young players across the US, reports www.fcbusiness.co.uk

The City squad is currently in the United States for its pre-season tour, visiting Houston, Los Angeles and Nashville.

SkillCity will see young American players compete across a series of challenges that have been exclusively developed by the Club's City Football Schools coaches.

The four challenges will allow boys and girls between the age of five and 14-years-old to test their speed of movement, ball mastery, finishing and passing – ranking themselves against their friends and Manchester City players.

Kevin De Bruyne and former Manchester City Women's player, and Tour Ambassador, Carli Lloyd have already tested the app and users can watch these videos to help develop their skills.

Users will then film their entries and submit them through the app, with finalists getting the chance to compete at the National Final in California this October.

The winner of the challenge, which is only open to US residents, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Manchester to watch a City match at the Etihad Stadium.

The innovative app uses the latest technology to provide users with an immersive experience, through their own personalised avatar.
