CLUB STORY

Mumbai City entered the City Football Group family in November 2019 as the Group’s eighth member and has since enjoyed great success.


The Islanders, as they are known colloquially, were crowned Champions of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) in 2021. That victory made them the first team in ISL history to secure the double of the ISL League Winner’s Shield and the ISL Playoffs Trophy in the same season. 


As a result of those endeavours, in 2022, the club played its first game in the AFC Champions League, and in April, it became the first Indian football club to win a match in the competition.


Mumbai City's success on a bigger stage translated to high performance in domestic competitions. In the 2022/23 season, they became Indian Super League winners for the second time, breaking many ISL records. Mumbai City clinched the title with two rounds of fixtures still to play. They had the most points, most wins, most goals scored, the biggest ever goal difference and the longest unbeaten run of games stretching to 18 matches.


After the takeover by City Football Group, Mumbai City's colours were changed to sky blue. The Club's crest was designed in collaboration with the fans, particularly the West Coast Brigade.


Fans voted on new crest designs featuring iconic landmarks of Mumbai, including the Bandra Worli Sea Link, the Mumbai train network, the Arabian Sea and two fortresses symbolising the city's resilience.


The Club plays its home games at the 7,000-capacity Mumbai Football Arena, which sits within the Andheri Sports Complex, a multi-purpose sports facility.


Mumbai City was formed in August 2014 at the birth of the ISL, a franchise competition. Mumbai City were one of the eight teams in the inaugural edition of the ISL and featured in the first game of the new competition against Atletico de Kolkata.


The Indian Super League has 12 teams, including the first promoted team from the second division. Since the 2019/20 season, the Asian Football Confederation has recognised the ISL as India's top-tier league. The winners of the ISL league are granted an annual spot in the AFC Champions League. Mumbai City has qualified for two consecutive seasons.
