WHO ARE THE 1894 GROUP?
Formed in the spring of 2013 we made our debut in the home game against Newcastle Utd in August that year. By that game we had already raised enough money for 2 giant surfer flags and 200 stick flags which we then sold on the night. Since then its’ been onwards and upwards.
We are drawn from long suffering City fans who went everywhere in the bad days and remember what it was like to stand on the old Kippax, We remember the old songs and how things used to be. We want those days back but we attend matches in an area where everything is corporate and the traditional fan is being priced out of the market, even then, to sit in a sterile, sanitised atmosphere.
We saw some of the Euro teams coming to our ground and thought, we need to be more like this.
