Description

2023 sees two major Manchester City stadium milestones. A century since the first game at their iconic former Maine Road home and 20 years since they moved to their new Etihad headquarters. This new, beautifully illustrated official book celebrates a remarkable 100-year-journey.

When a crowd of 58,159 fans packed into Maine Road to watch Manchester City beat Sheffield United 2-1 on August 25, 1923, it was the first step on a momentous journey. Nicknamed the Wembley of the North, the famous old stadium still holds the record for the highest provincial attendance in England – when an incredible 84,569 fans shoehorned into the ground to watch City beat Stoke City 1-0 in an FA Cup tie. Down the years it also was the venue for many FA Cup semi-finals and also later staged numerous concerts by some of music’s biggest-ever artists including Queen and the Rolling Stones.

But it’s as the vibrant and fondly remembered home of City for 80 years that it is best recalled. The club said an emotional goodbye to Maine Road in 2003 and moved to its new City of Manchester Stadium headquarters – known famously as the Etihad – where it will celebrate 20 success-filled years in August. ‘Our Home – from Maine Road to the Etihad’ celebrates both anniversaries on what has been a remarkable 100-year-journey.

Including rare archive material and featuring exclusive club photography, this beautifully produced official hardback book will capture relive some magical memories and will be an anniversary souvenir that any City fan, young or old, will savour.
