Manchester City FC Information, In Brief
The club came into existence in 1880, so they are a very old team.
Manchester City still plays its home games at the City of Manchester Stadium which has a capacity of 55,097. Due to sponsorship, the name of the stadium is now the Etihad Stadium.
The club moved from Maine Road in 2003. However, the club played at the Hyde Road Football Stadium for 36 years before this. However, Main Road still holds the record for the largest club-level crowd at 84,569. This is not surprising since its nickname was Wembley of the North.
Younger football supporters think of Manchester City as a club that has always been there or thereabouts. However, this is not the case. The club’s success is a relatively recent thing. For example, in 1999 they only managed to scrape back into the Championship via the play-offs. However, they still hold the title of the highest average crowd in the third tier – around 28,000.
All in all, Manchester City has only relatively recently broke into the top six. Having been in the wilderness for decades, somehow the money finally came to project the club forward.
