Atlanta Chiefs vs Manchester City, 1968: Friday Flashback Videos

This week’s episode of Friday Flashback Videos features a very rare video of a Manchester City from 1968 against the Atlanta Chiefs played at Atlanta’s Fulton-County Stadium, home to the baseball team the Atlanta Braves.

The friendly match was played just a few weeks after Manchester City had won the league championship under manager Malcolm Allison. According to Dave Brett Wasser, who found the video recording, Allison said prior to the match that the NASL was comparable to the Fourth Division in England. However, Atlanta won the match 3-2.

Apologies for the camera angle.
