Check out all 10 clubs that are owned by Man City's owners:

Ferran Soriano, chief Executive Officer of the CFG said: "We are very pleased to grow our global presence through this important collaboration with Club Bolivar, City Football Group’s first Partner Club.

"This long-term agreement is the first of its kind and will enable Club Bolivar to draw down on and utilise the wide range of football industry expertise developed by City Football Group.

"As well as supporting Club Bolivar’s ambitions, we have an opportunity to learn. Our work in Bolivia will certainly strengthen our knowledge of, and network in, South American football."
