Excitement builds around the world as we approach the big kick off in season 2011/12 of the Barclays Premier League.
There has been no shortage of exciting behind the scenes extras and competitions on the club's Facebook and Twitter this week to help get True Blues fired up for next Monday's clash against newly promoted Swansea.
City's Facebook page has been rolling back the clock with a daily album of photos from years gone by at the Etihad Stadium/City of Manchester Stadium from 2003 up to last season. Check out the photos uploaded so far and make sure you check them out over the weekend.
If you fancy joining us at the Etihad Stadium, we're giving away a pair of tickets to our Facebook friends, too.
Over on photo sharing network Flickr, we've got a set of exclusive shots from today's training session showing the lads in great spirits ahead of the big kick-off:
Today is also Mario Balotelli's 21st birthday and he has received over 1,000 messages from fans around the world on our social networks:
Have a great day Mario! Happy birthday, and here's to a great season!
Happy birthday, Mario!! I hope you know how much us City fans love our club and we hope that your genius will take us to the title at the end of the season!!
We've also launched our new Fan of the Week initiative, too so if you want to be featured on mcfc.co.uk, join the fun on our social networks and show us how much of a true Blue you are!
