Manchester City Football Club is a English football club. Its coach is the Chilean Manuel Pellegrini.

The club plays in the Premier League and is owned by a royal family from Abu Dhabi. As of September 1, 2008 they are the richest club in the Premier League.[1]

They won the 2011–12 Premier League championship, their first in the top flight since the 1967–68 season. Their current stadium is the Etihad Stadium (non-commercial name: City of Manchester Stadium). The stadium is part-owned by Manchester City Council, and could only be built on the understanding that Manchester City would take a tenancy after the 2006 Commonwealth Games, which the club agreed to do.
