A toast to the a??Raining Championsa??!

To celebrate Manchester Citya??s epic Premier League title win, global
water technology company Xylem, (NYSE:XYL), has teamed up with City and
Heineken Manchester to produce a??Raining Championsa?? a?? a limited edition
beer made with purified rainwater collected from the rooftop of Citya??s
Etihad Stadium. a??Raining Championsa?? is the latest in a campaign by Xylem
and City to show football fans globally how every country on earth faces
serious and escalating water challenges, such as lack of access to clean
water and flooding.


Brewed for the Premier Leaguea??s reigning champions, the beer will be
used to toast Manchester City as part of the end of season celebrations,
with a chance for some lucky fans to taste the brew over the coming
months.


Joseph Vesey, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at
Xylem, explained: "With Manchester averaging about 150 rainy days per
year, challenges like water scarcity may seem a world away but the
reality is that these issues are closer than we think. A staggering 3.6
billion people a?? almost half the global population a?? currently live in
areas that are water-scarce at least one month per year and, by 2050,
projections estimate that more than 5 billion people could suffer water
shortages. What better way to educate football fans about these urgent
challenges and celebrate a phenomenal season for Manchester City than by
toasting the club with a rainwater brew. Through this initiative, and
our wider a??Closer Than You Thinka?? campaign, we aim to inspire the next
generation of fans to think differently about water challenges and
solutions a?? like using recycled water to help tackle water shortages -
and encourage people of all ages to help create a more water-secure
world.a??


Recycled water is one long-term, sustainable solution to water scarcity.
The a??Raining Championsa?? beer was brewed using rainwater from the Etihad
purified with advanced, proven treatment technologies from Xylem that
produce safe clean drinking water to the highest standards. Fans are
invited to check out some water solving tips here.


Damian Willoughby, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at City
Football Group, parent of Manchester City, said: "Brewing a beer from
rainwater collected from the heart of our football club is a fantastic
and creative way to celebrate Manchester City winning another Premier
League title. Together with Xylem, we hope this will inspire fans to do
their bit and make a difference.a??
