Heart of the City: Ireland launch

Next stop on the Heart of the City world tour takes us to Ireland. We want Irish Blues to share with us their congressional places of MCFC worship!

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.

To recognise this we, in partnership with Umbro, will be producing 20 limited edition ‘Heart of the City’ fan plaques which we will send out to different bars/social clubs/venues who we feel are the heart of their city.

We are now looking for the ninth Heart of the City in Ireland and to join the most recent winner, O'Leary's in Gothenburg, Sweden (pictured) on the list of officially endorsed MCFC Heart of the City venues:

  • NRG Bar – Abu Dhabi
  • The Mad Hatter – New York City
  • Cheers Bar – Sydney
  • The Bombardier – Paris
  • Kell’s Bar – Portland, Oregon
  • Slainte Irish Pub – Baltimore
  • Opera Bob’s- Toronto
  • O'Leary's - Gothenburg


You can view all the HOTC venues on this interactive map and check-in with them on our official Foursquare profile.

Tell us why your venue should be the next Heart of the City by emailing your suggestions, stories and photos to marking your email 'Heart of the City - Ireland' and we'll announce the winner on soon!
