History
  Formed in 1880, Manchester City used various guises before choosing their current moniker in 1894. An FA Cup victory in 1904 was followed by 30 years of promotion and relegation, before The Blues prospered in the mid-1930s, winning the FA Cup in 1934 and a first league title in 1937, only to be relegated 12 months later. A third FA Cup triumph arrived in 1956 and a decade on, Joe Mercer oversaw a golden era in the history of the club. Manchester City earned promotion, clinched the 1968 Division One championship, lifted the FA Cup in 1969 and the European Cup Winners' Cup and League Cup in 1970. But from 1983 to 2002, the club swapped divisions on 10 occasions and life in the Premiership was initially proving hard to sustain. But City stormed to the Division One title under Kevin Keegan and their move from Maine Road to the City of Manchester Stadium signals the club's lofty ambitions.
