History of the Manchester City
Manchester City Football Club is a professional football club based in Manchester, England, that competes in the Premier League. Founded in 1880 as St. Mark's (West Gorton), they became Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887 and Manchester City FC in 1894. The team has enjoyed great success over the years, winning numerous trophies, including four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, and one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup since its inception over 130 years ago.
The first major trophy for Manchester City was won when they lifted their first FA cup title back on April 28th, 1904, against Bolton Wanderers by a score of 1-0 at Crystal Palace Park Stadium, with Billy Meredith scoring the only goal of the game to secure victory for his side. Since then, Man City has gone on to become one of English football's most successful clubs, having won 4 premier league titles along with 5 fa cups 3 league cups, plus 2 community shields. Their most recent success came under manager Pep Guardiola who guided them to an unprecedented domestic treble during the 2018/19 season, which saw them win both the Carabao cup & Fa cup while also securing their fourth premier league crown after finishing top of the table ahead of Liverpool FC by just single point margin.
In addition, Man city has had some memorable European nights too, as they made it all way to the UEFA champions league semi-finals twice back in 2016 & 2019, where unfortunately lost out to eventual winners Real Madrid & Tottenham Hotspur, respectively but still showed the world what this talented squad could do if given the proper guidance from manager. All these successes over the past decade or so show how far manchester city has come since being taken over by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2009, making them one richest teams not just in the country but the entire continent of Europe itself.

Citizens, Sky Blues, City
Manchester City has also had its fair share of nicknames. "The Cityzens" is about the city part of the name but also for the fans as the citizens of Manchester. "The Blue Moon" is in reference to City being in a blue kit but also when a fan once mooned a Manchester United supporter who is their biggest derby rival. "The Sky Blues" is about the color of the kit as well, the emphasis being on the word "sky" so that they differ from Chelsea. Although let’s be honest, most people just call them "City."
