Manchester cities home ground was at Maine Road since 1923, till 2003, when they moved to their new home ground the City of Manchester Stadium.
From the year 1968 to 1970 it was the most successful period in the history of the club, in that time they won the League Championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup. After losing the 1981 FA Cup Final, the club went through a period of decline, culminating in relegation to the third tier of English football for the only time in their history in 1998. Having regained their Premier League status in the early 2000s, the club were purchased in 2008 by Abu Dhabi United Group for £210 million.

In the 1930s, Manchester City reached two consecutive FA Cup finals, losing to Everton in 1933, before claiming the Cup by beating Portsmouth in 1934. Twenty years later, a City team inspired by a tactical system known as the Revie Plan reached consecutive FA Cup finals again, in 1955 and 1956; just as in the 1930s, they lost the first one, to Newcastle United, and won the second. The 1956 final, in which Manchester City beat Birmingham City 3–1, is one of the most famous finals of all-time, and is remembered for City goalkeeper Bert Trautmann continuing to play on after unknowingly breaking his neck.
