Additionally, CITY+, Manchester City’s in-house OTT platform, will be integrated with the JioTV platform, giving the Indian supporters access to unique club content like highlights, live matches for the Elite Development Squad and Manchester City Women’s team, matchday content, and City Studios documentaries.

Commenting on the partnership, Akash Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jio Platforms Limited), said:

“We are excited to announce Jio’s exclusive partnership with Manchester City in India through which we will present City fans with experiences through a multitude of digitally powered immersive initiatives. We believe both brands share similar values of bringing transformational impact to their communities and through this partnership, we endeavour to bring the best of football to the sports communities and Man City fans in India.

We look forward to working with Jio as we develop these opportunities throughout the partnership.
