CITY TO STAGE ENGLAND TOURNAMENT

Last updated : 03 January 2004 By Ben Collins
England, Japan and an as yet unchosen European nation will contest a three game tournament in early June, with each game played at the City of Manchester Stadium.

City's board has assured fans they have been working to stage internationals, a European final, or a pop concert, and this is the first event they have secured. The City board are still confident they can also secure a UEFA final in the near future.

An official announcement will not be made until the final team is confirmed.
