Umbro Makes Donation To Help Man City Supporters Clubs in Sierra Leone

On a day when Plymouth Argyle players are considering going on strike because they haven’t been paid in ages, it’s a breath of fresh air to hear about a feel-good story for a change.

Manchester City have been making inroads into Sierra Leone, a country that is the twelfth-lowest-ranked country on the Human Development Index and eighth-lowest on the Human Poverty Index. City have established a network of supporters groups in the country, and have been working with Umbro to give much-needed soccer equipment to many of these impoverished people.

Watch the video to learn more about Umbro’s donations as well as to watch a video of former Manchester City player Paul Lake, who is an ambassador for the club.

Hats off to Umbro and Manchester City for doing good deeds in a country where former City player Craig Bellamy has a soccer academy.
