Sports in the City of Manchester are an important part of the city's culture. SportCity in Manchester is a dedicated sport district in east Manchester for sports such as football, athletics and cycling. Facilities include the City of Manchester Stadium, the Manchester Velodrome and the National BMX Arena.

Manchester City and Manchester United are popular Premier League clubs in Manchester, although United are technically outside of the City of Manchester boundaries in the borough of Trafford, part of Greater Manchester. Fixtures played between the clubs are frequently referred to as the Manchester Derby and in 2012, both clubs finished first and second in the top tier of English football, with City beating United to win the Premier League. Manchester has hosted every major domestic, continental and international football competition, including: FIFA World Cup (1966), UEFA European Football Championship (1996), Olympic Football (2012), UEFA Champions League Final (2003), UEFA Cup Final (2008), FA Cup Final (1893, 1911, 1915, 1970) and League Cup Finals (1977, 1978, 1984).

Manchester has historically been part of Lancashire (and still is considered by traditionalists) before being subsumed into the new Greater Manchester Metropolitan County in 1974. Lancashire County Cricket Club is still based in Greater Manchester and formed in 1865 replacing Manchester Cricket Club.

Manchester has competed twice to host the Olympic Games, being beaten into fourth place by Atlanta in 1996 and coming third to Sydney in 2000. Instead, it was decided Manchester would host the 2002 Commonwealth Games with many first class sporting facilities being built for the games, including the City of Manchester Stadium, the Manchester Velodrome, the National Squash Centre and the Manchester Aquatics Centre. The 2002 games were considered a success, surpassing all expectations and demonstrated Manchester as a reinvigorated city for the 21st century whilst giving London impetus to bid for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Future plans for sport in Manchester include a horse racing course and the completion of the £100m Manchester City complex in east Manchester.
