Officially these days it is but so is Rochdale but try telling either there not Lancastrians or Mancs for that matter and they wont have it.
There is a Lancashire rose on the Man City badge.
Edit to add..Carl you beat me to it😁
Good news and bad.
Seeing as the points championship (Silver Roof) is what it is these days.
Could these meetings be part of the race for silver to add more spice and incentive to what remains of the season??..just an idea🤔
