With You Then, With You Now, With You Again

As Brendan Rodgers’ team restart the Premier League season, we know there will be something missing. Something that’s always been there. The people that truly bring the magic to the game. Our supporters.

Elsewhere, one hour ahead of kick-off, a new-look offering from LCFC TV will be available - completely free of charge - with several Foxes icons talking you through the action during City On The Sofa.

Filmed at King Power Stadium in accordance with social distancing guidelines, City On The Sofa will provide a relaxed view of City's remaining fixtures, while allowing supporters to have their say.

On the football front, meanwhile, a thrilling five weeks lie on the horizon for the Blue Army, with nine Premier League clashes and a home Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Final all to be settled in that time.
