Men’s team

It’s not just what we achieved, it’s how.

This was an historic campaign for our men’s team, who won the Premier League in record-breaking style.
We saw them achieve a series of Premier League firsts, including the most points, most wins, most goals and best goal difference in a season, wrapping up the title with five matches to spare.
Our 18-match winning run between August and December set a new Premier League record for successive victories and was key to the season’s overall success.
Our League Cup triumph – the fifth in the Club’s history – came courtesy of a 3-0 win over Arsenal at Wembley in March.
The end-of-season awards reflected our on-pitch dominance. Five Blues were named in the PFA Team of the Year and Leroy Sane won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Pep Guardiola became the first City manager to win LMA Manager of the Year and Premier League Manager of the Season, regarded as the most prestigious managerial awards in English football.

Women’s team

We’ve seen creativity, tenacity and more goals than ever.

Our women’s team secured another season of Champions League football by delivering a third consecutive top-two finish in the FA Women’s Super League (FA WSL).
Despite a fixture-heavy schedule and the league switching from summer to winter, we watched Nick Cushing’s side play some truly exceptional football in all four competitions.
For the second successive season we made it to the Champions League semis, losing to eventual winners Lyon. We also reached a third Continental Tyres Cup final and a fourth FA Cup semi-final.
Having recruited some of Britain’s most exciting and promising talent, we broke an FA WSL 1 record to become the all-time highest-scoring side in the league. That’s an exceptional total of 51 goals.

Academy & Elite Develoment Squad

Another successful season shaping the future.

Our U19s made it to the UEFA Youth League semi-finals, losing to Barcelona.
Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz made their first-team debuts in the UEFA Champions League against Feyenoord in November, and both debuted in the Premier League shortly afterwards, together with Lukas Nmecha.
Foden, Joel Latibeaudiere and Curtis Anderson joined England’s U17 World Cup winning squad. Foden won the Golden Ball for his performance, which included two goals in the final against Spain.
We witnessed many other significant accomplishments across each age group, including success for the U16s who won the Premier League Cup. Alongside our domestic achievements, we also enjoyed international success, including victory for the U11s at the inaugural International City Cup held at the Etihad Campus. A total of 37 players represented their country in U15-U23 age groups, including 23 England players.
Our girls’ development squad won the FA WSL Development League – Northern Division and the Development League Cup, and our talented U16s won both the Girls’ FA Youth Cup and the Southampton Cup.
