Soccer scores at Contact

We’re Not Really Here – A Football Opera at Manchester’s Contact is a celebration of what it means to be a football fan.

It puts Manchester City fans centre stage, with the audience watching what only the players get to experience.

They hear the personal stories of City fans as they watch a game in real-time from kick-off to final whistle—the highs, the lows, the chants, the banter and the songs—in a new show created with Greater Manchester people and an international creative team including directors formerly of Belgian company het Kip.
