On this day: Thousands welcome home 'the Fourmidables'

Looking at events that happened - good or bad - on this day in our history....

Monday, 19 May 2019

City’s all conquering first-team squads take to the streets with the six domestic trophies won during the 2018/19 campaign.

An estimated crowd in excess of 100,000 line the route and gather at Manchester Cathedral for a reception and party to celebrate our women's team cup double and an achievement no men’s team had ever managed before.

Dubbed the ‘Fourmidables’, it is also a chance for skipper Vincent Kompany to say goodbye to the City fans having announced his departure to Anderlecht.


Sunday, 19 May 2018

City secure Champions League football with a 3-0 win over Everton Ladies at the Academy Stadium. Needing victory to edge second spot over Arsenal, Jill Scott scores twice and Nikita Parris is also on target as Nick Cushing’s team confirm the runners-up spot behind champions Chelsea.

Wednesday 20 May 1981

What was hoped would be a celebration match for the City fans to enjoy turns into a game nobody really wants as City’s losing FA Cup final XI from a week earlier take on Manchester City 1969 FA Cup XI at Maine Road. The current side wins 9-2 but there is little joy on the day, few fans, and no FA Cup to show off.
