Vincent Kompany

Turning celebration into an instrument for social change


Tackle4MCR is a combined effort of Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, to address rough sleeping and homelessness on the streets of our city-region.

Tackle4MCR will catalyse, promote, organise and manage three fundraising initiatives following a considered approach spanning the full length of the football season, for the benefit of the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund.
