“Manchester City are still alive here…. Balotelli…. Agueroooooo… I swear you will never see anything like this ever again.”
Martin Tyler’s commentary captured the mood perfectly as Sergio Aguero ended City’s 44 year wait for a title in the most spectacular and dramatic of fashions.
A moment forever etched in the Club’s history, City fans now have the chance to up close and personal with the matchball from that memorable May afternoon.
The latest addition to the Club’s award-winning Stadium and Club tour will give supporters the opportunity to have their photo taken with the ball, set against the iconic backdrop of the Argentinean ace netting the championship-winning goal.
To outsiders it may just be a small bag of air, but the sight of it hitting the back of the net sent the Blue half of Manchester delirious.
Commenting on the unforgettable strike, Aguero said: “I dedicate that goal to the fans, without whom there is no Manchester City.”
Now fans can commemorate the emotion of 93:20 forever.
From the 15 February anyone who takes part in our Stadium and Club tour will be able to have their photo taken with matchball and the opportunity to purchase the special picture.
