Tokyo, Japan - 25th July 2023 – As part of Manchester City’s Summer2023 Asia-Pre-Season-Tour, and as a main sponsor of the club, #Midea took the opportunity to surprise local fans with superstars Erling Haaland, John Stones and Cole Palmer popping out of a Midea food truck – right under the iconic Tokyo Tower.


The local City fans were all lucky winners from a Tokyo based Manchester City fan club. They had been invited to a Midea #TasteTactics event, but had no idea who will be standing inside the Midea food truck serving them.


On the menu #HaalandsHotPies, #PalmersPeas and #StonesBrew - all very typical stadium food variants, fans are offered at City home games in Manchester - today spiced up with superstar names, served by the very superstars themselves, and prepared with the help of a range of Midea home appliances.


#TasteTactics is a series initiated by Midea in 2021 were Manchester City players share their favorite recipe or any dish that reminds them of #home, so then social media influencers with the help of Midea home appliances re-create the dish step by step - for global fans to try it themselves at home.


The recent AsiaTour brought the #ManCity team to Tokyo and Seoul. After winning a friendly match against sister club Yokohama Marinos, the lads left the fans under the Tokyo Tower heading to the open training before their friendly match against Bayern Munich.
