The 2001–02 season was Manchester City Football Club's 110th season playing in a division of English football, most of which have been spent in the top flight. This season was the club's most recent season of second tier league football, with the team playing in the Football League First Division following its immediate relegation from the Premier League in the previous season after its promotion the season before that. This time around the team was promoted at the first time of asking, with it winning the First Division by a clear 10 points while scoring more than 100 league goals for the first time since the 1957–58 season.

Season review[edit]

The team's performance in the First Division this season matched a number of prior club records whilst also setting some new ones. The team equaled the record number of total goals scored (108) in any prior season; set a new club high for total league points accumulated (99) in a single season (since 3 points for a win was introduced into English football); produced the highest number of seasonal wins (31); and equaled the club's prior record for the total number of home wins (19). Additionally, Manchester City's First Division championship title became a record seventh English second-tier title won by the club, a record still to be surpassed by any other English team. Shaun Goater, the club's leading goal scorer this campaign with a tally of 32 goals - making him the first City player since Francis Lee in 1972 to net more than 30 goals in a season - scored 28 of those in the club's pursuit of promotion back to the top flight, which meant that he was also the leading goal scorer in the First Division this season.

Team kit[edit]

The team kit was produced by Le Coq Sportif and the shirt sponsor was Eidos Interactive.
