Chicago MCFC have actively worked to help establish other Supporters Clubs throughout the United States and Canada. This Supporters Club also led group visits to Manchester for members of the Supporters Clubs in North America.
Outside of football, Chicago MCFC have helped give back to their community. In 2012, Manchester City co-funded an outdoor football pitch in Haas Park, Chicago, and members of the Chicago MCFC group have been involved in free football coaching programs provided to children in Chicago.
More recently, Chicago MCFC have been involved in volunteer work and fundraising for other charities, including a local homeless shelter and food pantry. In 2020, this Supporters Club made donations to the Chicago Greater Food Depository, Off Their Plate, and Cornerstone Community Outreach, a not-for-profit organization that serves nearly 500 men, women, and children daily to provide shelter and nutritious meals.
Overall, the actions of this Supporters Club have helped establish a sense of community in Chicago. The members of the Chicago MCFC have worked tirelessly to make their home a better place, and they have volunteered and donated to important causes within the community. Chicago MCFC have helped make a difference in their community.
