Manchester City Football Club is a professional soccer club that competes in the English Premier League (EPL), the top league in English soccer. The team was founded in 1880 as St. Mark’s before becoming Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887 and Manchester City in 1894. Manchester City joined the Football League in 1899 and won its first major tournament, the FA Cup in 1904. The club was one of 22 members to join the EPL when it was founded in 1992. Manchester City finished ninth in the inaugural EPL season but was relegated to the Championship the following year. They even dropped as low as League One in 1998-1999 but made it back to the EPL in 2000. After falling again to the Championship the next season, Manchester City was back in the EPL in 2002 and has stayed there ever since. Manchester City dominated the EPL in the 2010s, winning the championship four times and never finishing lower than fourth. The club has won the FA twice since 1992, most recently in 2019. They have won the League Cup four times since 2014 and the Community Shield three times since 2013. Manchester City has yet to advance further than the semi-finals in the Champions League. The club has played their home matches at City of Manchester Stadium in Manchester, England, since 2002. The stadium has the sixth-largest seating capacity in the EPL at 55,097.
