Manchester City Football Club, known as Manchester City and nicknamed Blue Moon, is a football club based in Manchester, England. Formerly known as St Mark’s Hall in 1880, the club was renamed Adwick in 1887 and changed to its current name in 1894.
In 1904, City won the FA Cup, the first major honor in the club’s history, and the late 1960s won the League One, European Cup Winners’ Cup, FA Cup, and League Cup, and after losing the FA Cup final in 1981, the club went through a period of decline and was relegated to the third tier in England in 1998, returning to the top flight in 2002. In 2008, the club was bought by an Abu Dhabi consortium from the Middle East. 2010-11 saw the team win the FA Cup, the club’s first title in 35 years, and 2011-12 saw the club regain the top-flight title after 44 years.
By the end of the 2020-21 season, City had won seven top-flight titles, six FA Cups, and eight English League Cups.
