Manchester City fans fume as pre-season derby against Manchester United only available on MUTV

MANCHESTER CITY fans are fuming as the club confirmed the only place to watch the pre-season Manchester derby is on MUTV.

The Premier League giants face off in Houston, in the first-ever meeting outside of the country.

It will be City’s first in their pre-season tour of the US, while, for Manchester United, it’s game No.3.

And the club’s official account explained where fans all around the world could watch the highly-anticipated match, which kicks off at 2:30am UK time on Friday July 21.

However, they explained the only way for viewers in the UK and Ireland to watch would be on MUTV — United’s official TV station.

Needless to say, City fans were less than pleased, with may questioning why it wasn’t being shown live on CityTV.

One irate supporter questioned: “So the only place we can watch it is on MUTV?”

While another urged the two-time Premier League-winners to “sort a TV channel out”.

Several supporters replied to tweet by revealing they won’t be watching the match.

While others used it as an opportunity to urge the club to sign left-back Benjamin Mendy from Monaco.

MUTV is a subscription-only channel, which costs viewers £4.99-a-month.
