Manchester City

Manchester City, one of the richest club in the world of football, has known many ups and downs since it was established in late 19th century, including long periods of playing in the second and third divisions. And, unlike now days, the club was nowhere near being a worthy opponent of city rivals, powerhouse Manchester United. It was only during the last decade that City has established itself as one of the leading, trophy-winning clubs in the Premier League.


Manchester City Football Club was founded 1880 as St. Mark’s, only to change the brand name two more times – first to Ardwick Association Football Club three years later, and then, in 1894, finally to Manchester City. The club had to wait over 40 years until First Division title in 1937 and another 30 years for a second, in 1968.

The 60’s and the 70’s were a period of relative success, as City challenged for the title a few times and won English domestic Cups.

One of the most memorable matches in that period was a derby against United in the next to last match of the 1973-74 season. United had to win the match in order to avoid relegation, but in the closing moments, City scored on a Denis Law goal. Not only was Law a former United player, he has also announced that this was his last season of playing. That derby became known as “The Denis Law Derby”. United, by the way, did relegate to the second division.

The 80’s and the 90’s were not the best of times for The Citizens, as hardship came and he club spent the years shuffling between the first and second divisions. United, meanwhile, went on to achieve great success, especially since the establishment of the Premier League in 1992. It all changed in 2008.

That year, City was taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group, which has since invested large sums of money on bringing in players and managers, developing the stadium and a top ranked youth academy.

In 2003, after playing for 80 years in the 35,150 seat Main Road, City moved into the new 48,000 seat (later expanded to 55,000 seats) City of Manchester Stadium and plans are under way to expand capacity to 61,000 seats. In 2010, the club reached an agreement with city council to purchase the naming right for the stadium and renamed it Etihad Stadium.

First trophy came in 2011, when the club won The FA Cup, the first silverware since 1976. The following year, City won the Premier League title on goal difference, edging past city rivals Manchester United on the last game of the season. That came thanks to a 94th minute goal by Sergio Aguero against Queens Park Rangers. The first league title in 44 years entitled City to qualify to the Champions League.

Since, another Premier League title followed, and an almost automatic qualification to the Champions League group stage.

City’s status as Europe’s wealthiest club allows for purchase of players in hundreds of Euros worth almost on a yearly basis. Recent success has set City’s rivalry with United to an all-time high. Status, money and success. Through in the clubs’ current managers to the equation – City’s Pep Guardiola Vs. United’s Jose Mourinho – and the result is s that the Manchester derby has become one of the main football events in England.
