The 1992–93 season was Manchester City's fourth consecutive season in the top tier of English football, and their first season in the inaugural year of the breakaway Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

In the 1992–93 season, Manchester City had a satisfying campaign, reaching the quarter finals of the FA Cup eventually losing 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur. In the Premier League, they were in a great position by 21 November, just three points adrift from the possible UEFA Cup place and seemed to be their realistic target but during most of the second half of the season, particularly in the final weeks of the campaign, Manchester City went on a poor run of just 2 wins of their final 11 league games and ended up finishing in a disappointing 9th place.

Kit[edit]

City retained the previous season's kit, manufactured by English company Umbro and sponsored by Japanese electronics manufacturer Brother.
