Not all people are introduced to City Football Group. This is the time that we need to know what it is and how it promotes our passion and love for football. The City Football Group is a company built to supervise the administration of clubs and football operations under the guidance of Manchester City. It is time that we know the subsidiaries of City Football Group.
Here are the subsidiaries:
- Manchester City F.C: Based in Manchester City, the club has the second largest stadium in England with adjacent training facilities. The Manchester City Football Club has picked up their pace holding the 2011 FA Cup and 2013-14 Football League Cup among others.
- New York City F.C: On May 2013, the New York City Football Club was registered. Following the registration, New York City F.C was announced as a Major League Soccer franchise.
- Melbourne City F.C: On January 2014, Manchester City acquired the then Melbourne Heart. Now, it is called Melbourne City F.C and as of August 2015, the City Football Group announced they acquired 100% ownership.
- Yokohama F. Marinos: On May 2014, the City Football Group announced its partnership with Nissan and minority shares (about twenty percent) of Yokohama F. Marinos. The City Football Group saw the need to establish a subsidiary in Japan.
The future looks bright for Singapore because Manchester City has set up another subsidiary here. City Football Singapore will be the base of Manchester City’s businesses here in Southeast Asia. This is because of the seen growth and support of Asians when it comes to football. The subsidiary here will work together with other partners like the SHB, Nexen Tire, Singha and Jiwasraya.
