The 2011–12 season was Manchester City Football Club's 110th season of football, its tenth consecutive season in the Premier League, and its fifteenth season in the Premier League. The club also played in the UEFA Champions League for only the second time, and the first time since its rebranding from being the European Cup, after finishing third in the 2010–11 Premier League. Manchester City's U19 squad will play in the inaugural tournament of the NextGen series.

Manchester City won the Premier League title for the first time in history by beating Queens Park Rangers 3–2 on the final day of the season, coming back from being down 2–1 with two stoppage-time goals just before the final whistle. The championship marked City's first English title since 1968, as well as the first time the Premier League has been won by a club whose current spell in the top division began after the League commenced play. It is also the first Premier League title to be decided on goal difference, and City's game-winning goal against QPR came 15 seconds after City's cross-town rivals Manchester United had just defeated Sunderland 1–0.

Kit information[edit]

The new home kit for 2011–12 season featured a unique 'soundwave' design on the jersey, inspired by the fans singing the 'Blue Moon'. It also featured light blue shorts and hoops. The away kit revived the popular red and black stripe design, worn in the mid 1960s when the club was owned by Joe Mercer. The navy away kit from last season was retained as a third kit, but it received slight modifications. There were three goalkeeper kits; one of them is dark olive-green; the second version was dark charcoal with white socks; the yellow and black goalkeeper outfit from 2009–10 was retained.
