Buy City's new home kit and see Doves for free

Long-time Manchester City fans Doves will headline a free gig on Friday 17 July at the City of Manchester Stadium. The Live from City concert is being organised by Manchester City and Umbro – the club's new sportswear partner.

It's a fantastic line-up with support coming from Hacienda DJ Mike Pickering, Twisted Wheel – who supported Oasis at Heaton Park, the hotly tipped Kid British, and The Answering Machine, who recently toured with the Manic Street Preachers.

If you want to go, pre-order the new Manchester City 2009-10 season home kit online at www.mcfc.co.uk and opt in to request a free pair of tickets. Orders can be placed from Wednesday 1 July, and the 2,500 pairs of tickets will run out quickly so act fast. You'll receive your shirt on the morning of 17 July so you can wear it at the gig that evening.

Jimi Goodwin, lead singer of Doves said, “It is a great honour to be asked to headline this event. I’ve been a City supporter all my life, so playing to a crowd of 5,000 people with the City of Manchester Stadium in the background is going to be an amazing experience.”
