Manchester City has launched SkillCity, presented by Nexen, a new interactive youth skills challenge app for 5-14 year olds.

SkillCity features a series of challenges that have been exclusively developed by Manchester City coaches.

Young soccer fans can test their speed of movement, ball mastery, finishing and passing skills – ranking themselves against their friends and City players.

Participants in the US can submit their videos now to be noticed by our coaches and qualify for our US national final in November!


At this special event, finalists will compete for one of eight all-expenses-paid VIP trips to Manchester, UK, while everyone who submits a video will enter the random weekly draw to win a special prize!

The competition closes on 15 October.

Take on your friends, other teams and Manchester City players, including Carli Lloyd and Kevin De Bruyne, in our search to find the most talented young players in America.

Users will then film their entries and submit them through the app, with finalists getting the chance to compete at the national final in California this October.

Belgian midfield star De Bruyne said: “The players loved trying out the SkillCity challenge.

"It’s a brilliant soccer app and young players will love getting the chance to test themselves against their friends and see how they do against the City players too.


"The challenges are a great way to learn new soccer skills that will help kids in the United States become better players.

"Good luck to everyone taking part – can’t wait to see how you get on!”

SkillCity is available to download for free from the Apple Store and the Play Store.
