This was the couple's first football match experience together. They expressed joy on witnessing the passion for football among players and fans.
"I've been to friendly matches and training matches before but this was my first time at a premier football match. Watching Manchester City play is incredible. The passion and support from the fans is something special.

Anushka shared her experience saying, "It's been crazy and amazing. The kind of passion you get to see in a football game is unparalleled. I've been to an El Clasico match before, and this is my second match, so I've been fortunate to witness some of the biggest games."
Manchester City also gifted Virat and Anushka personalized jerseys.
