City announce JD sleeve sponsorship

City are delighted to announce JD have become official sleeve sponsors for the Carabao Cup clash with Manchester United.

The sports fashion retail company will be lending their support to City in the quarter-final tie at Ashton Gate.

City are the last remaining EFL club in the competition and will host José Mourinho’s star-studded side in BS3 on Wednesday evening (8pm kick-off).

The game is a sell-out and will also be screened live on Sky Sports, as well as around the world to more than 80 different countries.

Bristol Sport chief commercial officer Caroline Herbert said: “We’re delighted to have the support of JD, a global sports fashion retailer with over 400 stores including in Bristol and at Cribbs Causeway, for the much-anticipated Carabao Cup quarter-final tie.

“There’s a real buzz around Bristol at the moment and everyone is looking forward to Wednesday’s cup tie as City look to reach the semi-finals.”

JD Group marketing director Stephen White said: “This is a fantastic draw for the club and a deserved tie after such a great run. We are delighted to partner with the club and look forward to seeing our brand on the kit for what will be a very exciting night.”

City have already beaten three Premier League teams en-route to the quarter-finals, overcoming Watford, Stoke City and Crystal Palace.

It will be the club’s first appearance in the quarter-finals since 1988/89.
