“Manchester City Football Club is an English football club in Manchester. They participate in the Premier League, which is the highest level of English football. The club’s home stadium is the Etihad Stadium in the east of Manchester.
Manchester City’s ancestry can be charted back to the cricket team of St Mark’s Church of West Gorton. Their members formed a football section in 1880 and played on a field of rough ground close to St. Mark’s church in Clowes Street. Within a year they left their humble surroundings and took residence at the Kirkmanshulme Cricket Ground nearby. However, the footballers were not popular with the cricketers and were soon banned due to the pitch getting ploughed up.
West Gorton, nicknamed ‘Gortonians’, almost faded away at the time but merged with Gorton Athletic to form Gorton FC. They choose a park, referred to as both Clemington Park or Gorton Park as a new home ground. Soon it was left in favour of Pink Bank Lane. Not for long however. In 1887 they changed headquarters to Hyde Road and this also brought about a change of name, to Ardwick FC. The end of the 1893/94 season saw these founder members of the Second Division finish second from bottom and adding to the misery Ardwick FC found themselves in a hopeless financial situation. The club as such folded but were resurrected as a limited company under the name of Manchester City, staying at Hyde Road.
The move to Maine Road, about two miles from the Gorton area, was initially pre-empted by a fire that destroyed the 4,000 seater stand at Hyde Road. Eventually, in August 1923 the move to their elaborate new surroundings was made after the Hyde Road site was acquired for tramway improvement. The Moss Side site was secured for £5,500 and nearly 57,000 fans attended the first match on 25rd August 1923, when City defeated Sheffield United. In August 2003 Manchester City took up residence of the 45,000 capacity City of Manchester Stadium, originally built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Meanwhile the ownership of Maine Road has been transferred to the Manchester City Council.
When Ardwick FC became Manchester City in 1894, the colours were Cambridge blue and sky blue. The ‘Ardwickites’ as they were called using red and black stripes away from home for a short while at the start of the 1880’s. However, in the mid 1880’s wearing black shirts emblazoned with a white cross.
The red and black of the original team reappeared in the late Sixties. Through the Seventies as City’s change strip at the instigation of Malcolm Allison. He felt the Milan based strip would create more fear for the opposition than sky blue would. The colours were famously worn to success in the 1969 FA Cup Final and the 1970 European Cup-Winners Cup Final. Latterly the term ‘sky-blue’ has temporarily given way to a new terminology, ‘lazer blue’. City reverted back to the more traditional sky blue in the summer of 2003.”
