A visit to United-City with Homefans shows you a side of Manchester that Sky Sports doesn’t want you to see.
By night, this city is famous for it’s pounding nightlife and a vibrant music scene. By day, conversations revolve around the city’s two football giants.
In the red corner, you have Man United – a global power and England’s most successful club.
In the blue corner, you have Man City – who have emerged from United’s shadow to join football’s elite.
United always had the upper hand. But over the last decade, the balance of power has edged closer and closer to the blue side of the city.
City’s fanbase now stretches far beyond Manchester. But their fans still see this derby as a fight between a local club and a global business.
This ignores the fact that United also command huge local support – which results in tense derby days that have been going strong for over a century.
Your weekend in Manchester will be led by hardcore United fan Matthew Battle.
Matthew has followed the Reds all over the world but loves showing his backyard to visiting fans. You’ll visit two of Matthew’s favourite pubs before heading to the stadium. Real local boozers where proper music, United memorabilia, and a pumping atmosphere are guaranteed.
So you can experience derby day like a local – and see a completely different side to this football-mad city.
