December 2018 Senior Citizens
1 / 4
The last few years have been kind to Premier League champions Manchester City but before that, their supporters have certainly experienced the highs and lows of the game. Periods of success were often followed by relegation or financial insecurity - but their support has always been strong.
Two supporters who could certainly never be accused of being fair weather fans are sisters Olga and Vera, who have been City season ticket holders since the 1930s. And the club chose to recognise their support in the best way possible at their Premier League match against Fulham. The pair were chosen to be mascots for the game, with 102 year old Vera and her younger sister Olga (98) leading the teams out arm in arm with City players David Silva and Fernandinho. This small gesture from City led to the sisters receiving worldwide coverage and warmed the hearts of football fans everywhere.
