MCFC are delighted to announce a new travel experience designed especially for the Club’s loyal supporters living in the south of England.
City in the City Express- an exclusive MCFC chartered train- will make following the team you love much easier for southern-based Blues.
Building on the success of our London City in the City events - proudly brought to you by Henley Investments - our exciting new association with Virgin Trains as Official Travel Provider for City in the City has enabled the Club to charter its very own private train for fans.
We know living near the nation’s capital and following the Blues is a big commitment, particularly for midweek matches.
City in the City Express will ensure supporters making the journey north to the Etihad Stadium for our UEFA Champions League clash against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday 15 March, at 7.45pm, can travel home on the same night of the game.
The last direct train from Manchester to London leaves at 9.15pm, which means it’s usually impossible for well-travelled Blues to enjoy a midweek fixture.
But now thanks to our chartered train service, it’s easier than ever for fans to cheer on Manuel Pellegrini’s men as they try to secure their place in the Champions League Quarter Finals.
Train itinerary (Subject to change):
- 3.30pm - Train departs London Euston
- 5.30pm - Train arrives at Manchester Piccadilly
- 7.45pm – Kick-off
- 10.30pm – Train departs Manchester Piccadilly
- 12.15am – Train arrives at London Euston
Once on board, lucky passengers can look forward to experiencing all the pre-match build-up on a train they can truly call their own.
Not only will every passenger receive a special gift as a memento, but they’ll also be in good company among MCFC legends, who’ll be on hand to meet supporters and share stories from past and present.
Once the train reaches Manchester, fans can then sit back, relax and watch the game in style from some of the best seats in the house, from either 93:20, Legends or Citizens.
