Manchester City WFC to host pre-season friendlies against FC Rosengård and Piteå IF.

Manchester City Women will kick-off their pre-season campaign with friendlies against FC Rosengård and Piteå IF.

Manchester City WFC will face the top Swedish opposition as part of preparations ahead of the 2016 FAWSL season, and their UEFA Women’s Champions League debut.

The club friendly matches against FC Rosengard and Pitea IF will take place at the Academy Stadium on Sunday 7 February and Thursday 25 February (both kick-offs at 1pm).

Gavin Mackel, Head of Women’s Football at MCWFC, said on the club’s official website (http://www.mcfc.co.uk/): “In addition to three domestic competitions we take on a new challenge this year with the Champions League, and preparation for that is key.

“Playing against European sides with the level of experience of Rosengard and Pitea IF will be an excellent way to begin our pre-season.”

Both FC Rosengård and Piteå IF compete in the Swedish Damallsvenskan, with FC Rosengård being the current title holders.

      Great start for Man City in pre-season. City played fluent football and dominated this match, though F C Rosengard had their moments. Great goal from Houghton. But I think we should have scored more from the amount of free kicks we got.

        Really good start! It was a great weekend for the English clubs with Arsenal beating Bayern Munich as well! This is very promising.
