Manchester City Tickets Information
Manchester City FC has one of the largest fan bases of any soccer club in the world. Manchester City competes in the English Premier League, the highest level of professional soccer in England. Founded as St. Mark’s Soccer Club in 1880, the team was renamed Manchester City in 1894 and have used the name ever since. Manchester City has a number of nicknames and is often referred to simply as City, or the Citizens. In its long history, Manchester City has accumulated a number of titles, and has held almost every major soccer title in top tier English soccer at one point in time. The most successful period for Manchester City came in the 1960’s and early 1970s when City took home the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup, and the elusive European Cup Winners Cup. Manchester City reached a low point in the late 1990’s, being regulated to the third tier of English professional soccer. But the team re-emerged as one of the top clubs in English soccer, rejoining the Premier League in the early 2000’s. 2011 marked the return of Manchester City to championship play, as the team took home the Premier League title, a feat that City would repeat in 2014.
