It proved to be a day full of emotion as City played our last-ever game at the atmospheric ground before moving to the Etihad Stadium and acclaimed photographer Kevin Cummins was there to chronicle the occasion.
A sell-out crowd saw Shaun Goater – playing his final game for the Club - skipper the team, against Southampton.
Though we lost the match 1-0, it was an unforgettable occasion for those lucky enough to be there.
Here, to mark the anniversary, we have put together a special gallery, featuring many of Kevin's iconic images, marking our last game at Maine Road… a ground we were proud to call home for 80 years.
