FA Cup

It was the first trophy City won by beating Bolton in the 1904 final

Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan is the new owner of the oldest existing version of the FA Cup trophy, having purchased the silverware at a recent auction, the Premier League club said Friday.

The Football Association Challenge Cup trophy, a forerunner of the FA Cup in use today, was presented to winning teams from 1896 to 1910, when the original was stolen from a shop in Birmingham after Aston Villa won the title.

It was the first trophy City won over a century ago by beating Bolton Wanderers 1-0 in the 1904 final, making them the first professional football club from Manchester to capture a major honor.

West Ham United co-owner David Gold has sold the oldest surviving The Emirates FA Cup trophy for 760,000 pounds at an auction.

West Ham United co-owner David Gold, the previous owner of the trophy, sold it for 760,000 pounds ($1.03m) at an auction in September 2020 with the winning bidder remaining anonymous.

Gold had bought the trophy in 2005 for 478,000 pounds during his time as chairman of Birmingham City.

City said the trophy has been offered on loan to the National Football Museum in Manchester, where it has been housed since 2005.
