Wembley glory: Watch highlights of finals down the years

Play off winners
Relive FA Cup victories from 1956, 1969 and 2011, as well as the vital play-off win against Gillingham in 1999...

Begin back in 1956, when City won the FA Cup by beating Birmingham 3-1 in the final. Bert Trautmann was a hero for the Blues, playing on despite breaking a bone in his neck. 

In 1969, City headed to Wembley again for another FA Cup final, this time against Leicester. Captain Tony Book picked up the trophy after a 1-0 victory. 

A thrilling game in the 1999 Division 2 Playoffs saw City eventually see off Gillingham on penalties, sealing promotion. It was a vital first step on the road to today's success - how far have we come? 

City's first major trophy in 35 years arrived on a memorable Wembley day in 2011. Having beaten rivals Manchester United in the semi-final, it was sheer delight when Yaya Toure's goal saw off Stoke City 1-0 for another famous FA Cup victory. 

If you want to continue your trip down memory lane, through City victories past and present, book your place on the 'Half Term Trophy Treat Tour'. This special edition of the stadium tour includes an added exhibit of trophies and shirts from these four finals, and you can also have your opportunity to take a photo with the Premier League trophy.
