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 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 won the English first division title for the third time in history and the first time in 44 years 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 Manchester rivals Manchester United had just defeated Sunderland 1–0.

Kit information[edit]

Umbro supplied kits for Manchester City for a third season in a row.

  • Home: The home kit for 2011–12 season featured a striking "soundwave" graphic embedded on to the front of the shirt. The "soundwave" graphic took inspiration from the club's anthem, the Blue Moon, which was sung by fans on the match days. The shirt was combined with sky blue shorts for the first time since the 2006–07 season and with hooped socks.
  • Away: The away strip saw a return to the red-and-black stripes, the traditional Manchester City away colours that were famously introduced by the club's former co-manager Malcolm Allison in the 1960s. The most notable element of the strip was the position of the stripes on the arms, which was designed so that if a player scored and held his arms out horizontally whilst celebrating, the stripes would match up with the stripes on the body. The kit was embellished with gold applications and completed with black shorts and socks.
  • Third: Manchester City's navy away strip from the previous season was retained as a third kit and was worn with white shorts and socks in its only outing against Aston Villa.
  • Keeper: Umbro made two new goalkeeper strips for the 2011–12 season. The first choice kit was based on the design of the outfield home strip and included the "soundwave" graphic, but in dark green with light green detailing. The second choice kit was dark grey with white detailing, whilst the yellow/black outfit introduced in 2009–10 was retained as an alternative for its third season with yellow socks.

Notes:
  1. ^ a b Chelsea won the Champions League and thus qualified for the group stage as defending champions, forfeiting their spot in the Europa League as the FA Cup winners. This meant that Tottenham were to compete in the Europa League group stage, since, pursuant to the rules in effect at the time, only four clubs from the Premier League could play in the Champions League.
