Mike Summerbee will relive one of the finest moments enjoyed by the vintage team of the late 1960s in City Square this Sunday.

The Club Ambassador will pop along to Live from City Square to look back at "The Ballet on Ice", City's 4-1 win over Spurs that took place at a snow-covered Maine Road in December, 1967.

Luckily the Match of the Day cameras were there to record that famous win and such was the reaction to a magnificent performance in such tough conditions that the game become known as "The Ballet on Ice". Mike put City ahead after Colin Bell had equalised Jimmy Greaves' early opener, then Tony Coleman and Neil Young sealed a crucial two points in that title-winning campaign.

There'll be lots going on in our fan zone ahead of the game, so if you are one the already sold-out crowd why not pop along? Dressed head to toe in blue, of course, for #bluesunday and the cityfancam.

And if you can't wait to see footage of this legendary game, have a look on CityTV now!
