However, the biggest prize in club football – the UEFA Champions League – continues to prove elusive to the blue side of Manchester.
City have had a number of near misses in the competition, including losing the 2021 final to Chelsea and conceding two late goals to Real Madrid in their heartbreaking semi-final defeat in the 2022 edition.
And it is not only on the pitch that Manchester City have a tricky relationship with the Champions League.
Before European home matches at the Etihad stadium, City fans boo the Champions League anthem when it is played at the start of matches.
So, what are the reasons behind the fan discontent aimed at the almost universally beloved Champions League?
Why do City fans boo the Champions League anthem?
But when City played Sporting Lisbon away from home just a month later, the team were 30 seconds late emerging for the second half and were fined €30,000 (over £26,000), sparking outrage from fans.
Fans were scorned again in 2013, when group stage opponents CSKA Moscow were forced to play their home match with City behind closed doors following racial abuse by fans of the Russian club.
City fans were also barred from entering the stadium, despite the fact that many had already bought flights, hotels and tickets for the game.
On the night of the match, many CSKA fans were allowed into the stadium, with some even wearing colours – and the length of their stadium closure was actually reduced on appeal.
In February 2017, Manchester City were due in Ukraine to face Dynamo Kyiv in the Round of 16, but the game was scheduled to be played behind closed doors and so City fans knew not to travel.
However, UEFA overturned the ban just weeks before the game, at which point it was too late for City fans to arrange travel and accommodation.
The biggest flashpoint in City fans’ animosity towards UEFA was when the club were found to have breached Financial Fair Play rules in 2014.
The club were fined £49million, made to restrict their transfer spending and forced to name a smaller Champions League squad.
Manchester City were again found in breach of Financial Fair Play rules in 2020, with the decision to ban them from the Champions League for two seasons only overturned on appeal.
Other clubs around Europe have been found in breach of Financial Fair Play, but City fans believe these clubs have been let off lightly in comparison to the punishment dished out to them by UEFA.
