Watch Manchester City at the Etihad! Guide to buying tickets

Getting tickets for football matches has become an increasingly difficult task in recent years. With Manchester City becoming a European powerhouse over the last 10 years, attracting fans from all over the world, fans might be concerned about the prospect of missing out on watching their team live.

There is certainly a misconception attached to the club that going to games is near impossible due to the high demands, but with this article we will show you how easy it is to get your hands on tickets.

The most popular way fans can purchase tickets is via the club’s website – www.mancity.com. Here, you can find all relevant information about upcoming matches and the sales criteria for each game.

Matches at the Etihad are always in high demand, but are still more often than not put on general sale. For home matches, the website has an interactive stadium plan showing all the seats which are available and allows fans to pick the specific seat or seats they would like. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone by calling 0161 444 1894. They can also be bought at the ticket office, which on non-match days is on the first floor of the City Store at the Etihad.

Buying a season ticket guarantees being able to watch all 19 home games for the Premier League. Season ticket holders have their seats reserved for all 19 Premier League home games, and can be purchased on the club’s website. Similarly, a club membership can be bought on the site, and pricing for these are are as follows: Adult – £35 … Teen/Junior – £25.

However, if you don’t want to purchase a membership package or season ticket, there are still ways of buying official club tickets for City. There are many agencies that act as third-parties, buying tickets from members and selling them on at a higher price. These sites, such as Viagogo, are very good for those who are visiting Manchester on a one off.

Due to the strict competition for tickets, Premier League games might be a tough ask to get tickets for. But cup games like the Carabao Cup, The Emirates FA Cup and the Champions League are sometimes put on general sale, making them a much more accessible way of watching City.
