Raheem Sterling has covered the cost for match tickets and travel for students at his former school in north London. Manchester City footballer Raheem Sterling has been praised for his generosity after buying tickets to this weekend's FA Cup semi-final and donating them to students at his former school. The year-old winger has also offered to pay for the students' transport to and from the match, which will see City up against Brighton for a spot in the final. Situated a stone's throw from Wembley Stadium - where Saturday's match will be held - Ark Elvin Academy is the former secondary school of Sterling, and the namesake of Sir Arthur Elvin, the businessman often credited with saving the stadium from ruin. It was called Copland Community School when Sterling attended, but changed to an academy in , and is known for its high percentage of students from minority backgrounds. In a tweet posted on Thursday afternoon, the academy said its PE teacher along with 10 students would travel to Manchester to personally thank their "most famous 'old boy' for his generous donation".
