Every City fan knows what they were doing when Sergio Aguero scored in the 93rd minute back in 2012 against QPR.
The 13th of May will be a date that is now ingrained in Manchester City’s history.
For me the moment when Balotelli passed it to Aguero and he took that shot will stay with me forever. The celebrations were wild, cheers rang loudly around the stadium and I ended up three rows in front….no idea how to this day!
We wanted to capture some of the best moments of that season and celebrate that iconic day by creating a series of exclusive beer mats and bottle openers.
Each beer mat features one of the players from that game and also manager Roberto Mancini who guided City to the title for the first time in 44 years.
I ordered this for my dad as a gift for his home bar. The quality is excellent and really quick delivery. He loves them, would definitely recommend!Thanks to Jessica for her 5* review about them
There are 12 beer mats in the set, with each one printed on the reverse with the Kegs of the Kippax design which follows on from the popular Champions range.
It took over three months to finalise the designs and after five rounds of amends, we were ready to get them printed in the UK.
Here are some of our favourite parts:
Featuring part of Martin Tyler’s famous commentary when Aguero scored “So Watch It, Drink It in” alongside the time of the goal. The silhouette of Aguero celebrating with his shirt off is the main feature of the golden ale.
He might have been the joker of the dressing room but you can’t forget the pass he made to Aguero for him to score that goal. Taking inspiration from a computer game that features a character called Mario, the beer mat celebrates the moment Balotelli lifted his shirt that season to reveal ‘Why always me’ after scoring at Old Trafford.
The song that gets in your head and is still sung today; ‘He comes from Italy….” The manager that guided City during that historic season, wearing his blue and white scarf in the dugout.
City fans often refer to him as Bobby Manc and the year of his birth (1964) features on the Italian beer.
The leader at the back, the Captain who rose above the crowd to score against United and put City at the top of the table on goal difference.
Cometh the hour, cometh the Captain.
The beer mat also makes reference to Belgium with Vinny’s Beer Kompany.
The season when City scored 6 at Old Trafford and Dzecko scored the last in the 94th minute after already scoring four minutes earlier!
City are not bitter, just better! It also features the line of 60,000 empty seats from the song. We all know it should have been 10!
The beer mats can be purchased online here with Worldwide delivery available.
Each mat is sourced from ethical materials and 100% recyclable. They are delivered in a ‘93:20’ presentation box.
