Manchester City
Premier League Winners 2013/14 Team Pack

The 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season was a real roller coaster, with many up's and down's along the way. City had a new manager in the form of well travelled and experienced Manuel Pellegrini, with the Chilean leading City Premier League glory!

It looked set for Liverpool to win their first Premier League trophy, however a 2-0 defeat at home to title chasing Chelsea, followed by a dramatic 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park put pain to that and allowed City to take the initiative. In actual fact Manchester City were only top of the table for a mere 11 days, just going to show the league is a marathon not a sprint. Manchester City played some beautiful attacking football during the course of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season, scoring a total of 102 goals, the second highest in Premier League history, only bettered by the Chelsea side of 2009/10, which scored 103!

SoccerStarz released this 19 figure tem pack to commemorate their achievement of 2 Barclays Premier League titles in 3 years. The team pack consisted of 18 outfield players and manager Manuel Pellegrini who was on a BLACK base.

The team pack features 3 EXCLUSIVE figures all on BLACK base, those being Aleksandar Koloarov, Edin Dzeko and Martin Demichelis, all in 2013/14 Home kit. Those 3 figures would also be released as part of the 2014/15 Collection but in 2014/15 kit of course, so your only way to acquire them in 2013/14 kit was by purchasing this team pack! The other 15 SoccerStarz figurines were on a GREEN base and had all previously been released as part of the 2013/14 Collection. One figure which varies from the previous released version is Joe Hart, he was released as a single blister in the 2013/14 collection in the same kit, however the Hart inside this team pack has a WHITE stripe down each sleeve, making that a new and EXCLUSIVE figure!

It was of course great to get those 3 exclusives, however it was disappointing not to see Javi Garcia included in this team pack, he featured very heavily during the season, making 29 league appearances, so i feel his omision from the pack is regretable. Jolean Lescott made 10 appearances and seeing as how he is sculpted and released for West Bromwich Albion, he is a surprise omision, especially when you see Micah Richards included, who made a measely 2 appearances all season!

The Manchester City Premier League Winners 2013/14 Team Pack was limited to just 1,000 pieces, with each pack coming complete with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, further enhancing the packs collectibility. The 19 Collector Cards were all fully updated and Fernaninho had his nae spelt correctly, unlike the 2013/14 blister pack version, which had it spelt as Fernandihno...oops! A great pack and a sure fire collector's piece in years to come. Upon it's release it retailed at £45-55.
