Manchester City Football Club (MCFC) has become the first football club in the world to launch a match day app for wearable devices.

Designed for the Android Watch, the CityMatchday Wear app will notify users of key match day moments such as team sheet announcements, goal alerts, penalties and red cards and other select commentary.

Diego Gigliani, director of media and fan relationship management at MCFC, said: "CityMatchday Wear is another example of how we are constantly exploring and adopting new technology with the ultimate goal of improving the fan experience and strengthening fans’ engagement with the Club.

"We recognise the smart watch market is still in its early stages but its popularity is projected to increase rapidly as new players come into the market. We’re thrilled to get in early and start discovering ways to tap into the devices’ potential.

Gigliani added that the app has partly been designed with those fans in mind who can’t physically be at every game.

"With millions of City fans worldwide, many won’t be able to watch all our matches live, whether in the stadium or on TV,” he said.

"For those fans who want to keep up with all the action but are unable to watch the game, having CityMatchday Wear on their Android watches will allow them to go about their busy days while receiving key updates related to our matches as they happen."
