Manchester Football Club was established in 1880 as St. Mark's (West Gorton), they became Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887 and Manchester City in 1894. 

Following a successful but emotional move from Maine Road in the Summer of 2003 (having played at Maine Road since 1923), the club moved to its current football ground Etihad Stadium.

The club's first successful period was in the late 1960s and early 1970s when they won the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup.

Having regained Premier League status, the club was purchased in 2008 by Abu Dhabi United Group and has become one of the wealthiest in the world.

In 2011, Manchester City qualified for the UEFA Champions League and won the FA Cup. The following year, they won the Premier League, their first league title for 44 years. In 2014, they won the League Cup and a second Premier League Title. Manchester City enriched their history in the 2015/16 season by reaching the semi-final of the Champions League; further than they have ever gone in this competition before. They are the current holders of the Capital One Cup, claiming victory from Liverpool on penalties.

On the Stadium and Club Tour, a professional guide will navigate an unforgettable and all-encompassing tour of the club and Etihad Stadium, which captures the very essence of Manchester City.

The tour will showcase the pride, the passion and the heritage of the football Club. It shows how everything that happens on and off the pitch contributes to making Manchester City the Club that it is today.

Finally, take in the view from new manager Pep Guardiola's seat in the dug-out - there's the opportunity to experience everything.

Outside of the football season the stadium hosts major national and international football events as well as summer concerts. Stadium tours are available and the club has an excellent museum packed full of football memorabilia.
