The Manchester City football club  is set to open a new store at the Manchester Arndale shopping centre today.

The Premier League champions have taken a former Pink unit at the scheme.

The store will cater for its army of fans across the city with merchandise ranging from team kits and training apparel to hats, scarfs, and memorabilia.

To mark the opening and recent league title win, the club’s Premier League trophy will be  on display in the store from 9am on Friday until 6pm on Sunday to enable fans to have their photo taken with the iconic silverware. Customers will also be able to experience the new digital activities within the store, including the ‘Meet the Players’ interactive video wall.

Manchester City’s new club shop will sit alongside other popular sports and leisure stores such as Footlocker, JD Sports and Sports Direct.

Manchester City’s arrival follows a string of new retail lettings at Manchester Arndale, including Miniso, Gilly Hicks, Clarks, and Flying Tiger.
