The 1969–70 season was Manchester City's fourth consecutive season in the top tier of English football.

Kit[edit]

Manchester City overcame a slow start to sit fourth in the table with half of the season played, but a run of only three wins from 18 games saw City slump to finish in tenth place. City's form in the cup competitions were better by far: they defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1 in the League Cup Final and Górnik Zabrze 2-1 in the European Cup Winners' Cup Final to become the first English team to win both a (UEFA-sponsored) European and a domestic cup in the same season.
