Happy birthday Manchester City!

It seems hard to believe but Manchester City were actually formed in 1894.

This means City have been a continuous entity for 125 years today!



From playing for recreation the Church Football team steadily developed and played a first competitive match on 13 November 1880 against opposition from Macclesfield.

City still play within a few miles of St Marks Church in Gorton and their original home at Hyde Road.

The name changed from St Marks Gorton to West Gorton eventually becoming Ardwick FC.

Many football clubs claim a heritage in excess of 125 years, and in many ways City do too, but what is being celebrated today is it is 125 years since the formation of what is still today called Manchester City.
