Manchester Magic is an English basketball team from Manchester, competing in the National Basketball League, Division 1. They play their home games at the Amaechi Basketball Centre, which was funded by former NBA star John Amaechi.

After a long tenure in the top tier of the English Basketball League, the team decided to play in Division 3 for the 2011-12 season. According to club director Joe Forber, the club's intention is "to forge a much closer link between the youngsters... and the men's team".[1]

After a successful season in Division 3, Magic were promoted to Division 2 for the 2012-13 season, gained back to back promotions back to Division 1 for the 2013-2014 season.
