Congratulations to Opera Bob's Public House in Toronto, Canada; recipients of the the latest Heart of the City award.
The popular hang-out for Canadian Blues was brought to our attention by City fan Chris Harris and joins a prestigious list of venues that we deem as being at the heart of their city.
To celebrate the fans of MCFC that are based around the world we want to discover those places at the heart of different world cities where supporters congregate to connect with the club. These are special places where on matchdays, the team are cheered on by fans as they would if they were at the stadium. They act as community outposts, where City supporters abroad or on holiday can still connect with their beloved Blues.
Last week, Opera Bob's proudly unveiled their plaque and around twenty local City fans attended the bash.
Having MCFC support Opera Bob's and our group has been a real honour. We're extremely proud of Heart of the City and it has helped our group have an even stronger connection to the club - something I wouldn't have thought possible.
The next destination for Heart of the City is Sweden, so if you're a City fan living in the Nordic country and have a place you like to get together with friends and cheers the Blues on, email us at email@example.com marking your email 'HOTC' and you could receive your very own Heart of the City award!
