The 15 Most Impressive Manchester City Records of All Time

Since it was founded in 1880, Manchester City has broken numerous records to be regarded as an elite club not just in England and Europe but worldwide. By 2002, Manchester City had won promotion to the Premier League by climbing from Division 1 and the Championship. 

Its win percentage has improved while on the way to winning numerous accolades, and bettors have also cashed in on the team’s good run of form. It’s no wonder football betting sites UK often give the team high winning odds.
