The third Supporters Club featured in this series hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Established in 2018, the Milwaukee Cityzens gather at the Highbury Pub to watch and cheer on their beloved Manchester City. This Supporters Club has members throughout Wisconsin, and their support for this English club has allowed them to form new friendships across the state.
Prior to their official formation in 2018, Manchester City supporters in Wisconsin were known as “unicorns” because they were unique and few and far between. Now that they have formed an official group, the Milwaukee Cityzens have embraced this label, particularly during the early morning kickoff matches, and have commonly used the phrase “Unicorns ride at dawn”.
This Supporters Club and their sense of community goes beyond football. The Milwaukee Cityzens support the Sojourner Family Peace Center, an organization that helps victims of domestic violence. During the coronavirus pandemic, the Milwaukee Cityzens also worked together to raise funds for their beloved Highbury Pub.
Overall, the actions of the Milwaukee Cityzens demonstrate that there is more to football than just following a club, as shown by their contributions to the Sojourner Family Peace Center. The Milwaukee Cityzens have worked tirelessly to give back to their community, and the funds raised have gone toward an important cause.
Man City Square would like to thank the Milwaukee Cityzens for their time and participation in this report.
