Manchester City F.C. History

Manchester City was formed in 1880  named of St. Mark's, after founder  Arthur Connell the rector of St Mark's Church. They had  a few name changes in the early years , Gorton FC and Ardwick AFC but  in 1894  they changed their name to Manchester City . 

In 1899 the club earned promotion to the First Division. In 1904 City had won their first trophy the FA Cup. In 1923, the club moved to Maine Road due to a fire that had destroyed the main stand at tehir previous ground  Hyde Road.In 1934, City won their second FA Cup  breaking  a record for highest attendance in a single game  which stands to this day  with 84,569 home fans gathering at Maine Road for a sixth round match against Stoke City.

Three years later, City won the  First Division title, scoring over 100 goals in the season.A period of decline followed with only a single FA Cup in the next three decades and attendance falling .  Joe Mercer was appointed as manager in 1965,  during his six years in charge, City won the First Division title, both English Cups and a Cup Winners' Cup. After Mercer the club win another League Cup in 1976 before another period of decline.

City's return to top flight football started in the season 1998-99.  After a dramatic play-off match against Gillingham, City won promotion from the Second to the First Division. The Following season they were again promoted , to the English Premier league .  After relegation from Premier League and promotion back   Manchester City have since becom an ever present Premier League team.For many years, Maine Road was City's home stadium, but in 2003 City of Manchester Stadium was built with a much bigger capacity.

A takeover by the Abu Dhabi billionaire Sheikh Mansour in 2008 signaled a new and triumphant era. Now one of the richest clubs in the world, City got active in the transfer market, buying many big-name players for record fees. The Abu Dhabi influence was also displayed by the decision to change the name of the home stadium to Etihad Stadium in 2011.This spending  the club relive their past successes, winning Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup titles. A high point was the league victory in 2017-2018 season in which City became the first team ever in Premier League to collect 100 points in one season.
