Manchester City will wear a special shirt on Wednesday against Arsenal when the Premier League returns in recognition of a coronavirus relief-fund campaign launched by City Football Group.

Pep Guardiola and Manchester City will welcome their former assistant manager, Mikel Arteta back to the Etihad Stadium for the first time since the Spaniard joined Arsenal as head coach in December.

According to SkySports, Man City will wear special shirts in recognition of a coronavirus relief-fund campaign set up by City Football Group, against Arsenal in the Premier League.

Chief executive of City Football Group, Ferran Soriano said: “Frontline workers around the world have heroically responded to the immediate threat of COVID-19. We have been privileged to play our own small part in helping to address that immediate threat.

“Now is the time for us to look forward, committing to meeting our responsibility to help our communities recover.

“This multi-faceted campaign is going to use our expertise, our facilities, our platform and our voice to help people and our communities to heal and recover. And we will do it together. We are calling on our global community of Cityzens to help us to give and to help as many people as we can to recover.”

The City group owns eight other football teams around the world which include: Manchester City FC, New York City FC, Melbourne City FC, Yokohama F. Marinos, Montevideo City Torque, Girona, Sichuan Jiuniu and Mumbai City FC.

The group has made almost £1m in donations in the last three months and wants to match that over the next 12 months through its clubs, staff, players, coaches and fans.
