Manchester City's Premier League trophy will soon hit the South African shores as their tour goes global. Check it out!

What Happened? 

The Citizens edged past Liverpool in the 2021/22 season to win their fourth title in five seasons in the Premier League. While the club’s past is not filled with trophies, the future certainly looks promising as they have become the most successful English side in the past decade.  

With Erling Haaland now in their ranks, it is looking more likely that the striker will lead the side to more league titles.  

With City becoming one of the biggest European clubs, they have planned to take their Premier League title around the world and one of the first stops is Cape Town.  

On the Trophy Tour’s first visit to South Africa, the trophy will be accompanied by City legend Joleon Lescott for a football festival and screening of a fixture against Liverpool on Sunday 16 October.

City adopted a red and black away kit colour in the 1960s after former assistant manager Malcolm Allison felt adopting the colours of AC Milan would inspire City to glory. The theory worked, as they won the 1969 FA Cup, 1970 League Cup and 1970 European Cup Winners’ Cup in red and black stripes.
