By that time, Manchester City may also be Premier League champions although their hopes of winning the Champions League were dashed in an epic quarter-final loss to Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.
“Although the result was not the one that we had hoped for, it was very special to hear our fans in full voice for ninety minutes backing the team,” added Kompany.
“We still have so much to fight for this season, and this is our way of saying thank you to them for being with us every step of the way.”
The coaches for the 420 mile (680km) round-trip to London will be funded by each of the 26 players in the first team squad.
Meanwhile, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will target the quadruple again next season with Manchester City despite the disappointment of this week’s Champions League exit against Tottenham.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss whose City side, thanks to a quirk of the fixture list next play Tottenham again in the Premier League on Saturday, added: “Who knows what’s going to happen in the future? The present is this game and I will try.
“I will dream next season of fighting for the four titles, that’s my dream.”
