City's players will wear 'FvH' T-shirts during the warm-up while Chelsea are hosting a 'Game for Equality', showcasing their partnership with the FvH campaign and Kick It Out.

The Gunners are participating for the third year in a row, with their 'Arsenal for Everyone' match this Saturday.

So far, 44 clubs have joined the campaign, whose spokesperson Lou Englefield said: "We are confident that by the end of the month, over 50% of professional clubs will be on board. This is a real increase on last year's 30%, and we hope that next year, this number will rise again."
