Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, and official partner of the Manchester City Football Club Trophy Tour, celebrated the club’s record-breaking 2018/19 season with a display of trophies at its Abu Dhabi headquarters for employees to enjoy.

In celebration of Manchester City making history as the first English football club to lift six trophies in the same season, the trophies were also displayed in the airline’s luxurious Lobby on the upper deck of an Airbus A380.

Pep Guardiola's men't team won the Premier League title, as well as the FA Cup, Community Shield and League Cup while the women’s team won the FA Cup and FA WSL Continental Cup.

Following the six-day visit to the UAE, the trophies will be transported to Cairo by Etihad Airways to continue the global tour. The trophies will return to the UAE in November as part of the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix celebrations.
