Man­ches­ter City part­ner with Xylem to raise aware­ness about glob­al water chal­lenges and its solu­tions

Pre­mier League Cham­pi­ons, Man­ches­ter City have announced a glob­al mul­ti-year part­ner­ship with Xylem to become the Club’s Offi­cial Water Tech­nol­o­gy Part­ner. The part­ner­ship was announced at an event in Sin­ga­pore, which was attend­ed by Club leg­end, Joleon Lescott, dur­ing the Sin­ga­pore Inter­na­tion­al Water Week – the world’s pre­mier glob­al plat­form for co-cre­at­ing inno­v­a­tive water solu­tions.

Xylem will also part­ner with City’s sis­ter club New York City FC and the Man­ches­ter City women’s team.

Through the part­ner­ship, Xylem aims to raise aware­ness about press­ing glob­al water chal­lenges and solu­tions. Xylem will also work with Man­ches­ter City on Xylem Water­mark projects, such as build­ing water tow­ers in com­mu­ni­ties around the world with­out access to clean water. Xylem Water­mark is the company’s social invest­ment plat­form. Across the globe, 2.1 bil­lion peo­ple lack clean drink­ing water at home which has seri­ous con­se­quences for com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment. Every year, 443 mil­lion school days are lost world­wide due to water-relat­ed ill­ness­es, and women and chil­dren spend more than 200 mil­lion hours col­lect­ing water dai­ly, dras­ti­cal­ly lim­it­ing time for more pro­duc­tive endeav­ours.

Xylem brand­ing will fea­ture at the Club’s Eti­had Sta­di­um on match days and also at the City Foot­ball Acad­e­my.

Dami­an Willough­by, Senior Vice Pres­i­dent of Part­ner­ship at City Foot­ball Group, said: “We are delight­ed to announce this new part­ner­ship with Xylem. Man­ches­ter City and Xylem share a com­mon com­mit­ment to oper­at­ing in a sus­tain­able and inno­v­a­tive way, whilst enhanc­ing the lives of peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ties around the world. We are excit­ed to har­ness the glob­al appeal of foot­ball to raise aware­ness of water chal­lenges and sup­port Xylem’s efforts to tack­le these issues.”
