Manchester City’s Kids Fanzone is back!

This exclusive free event for junior fans and their families returns for the season when we welcome Burnley to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 16th October.

The Man City Kids Fanzone is open from 11.30-2pm and is located on the indoor pitch at the City Football Academy, giving supporters the opportunity to visit the Club’s training ground for two-and-half hours of fun before the match gets under way.

You can redeem six tickets per person and, as part of our COVID-19 health and safety measures, the event is being held at a reduced capacity, so we advise to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.



Our Kids Fanzone provides a range of activities for youngsters to enjoy.

City in the Community coaches will be running football skills sessions, you can play inflatable games such as Zorb Football and take part in arts and craft activities.

This is also your opportunity to get your photo taken with the Premier League trophy, to meet our official mascots, Moonbeam and Moonchester and to join our March to the Match one hour before kick-off.

In addition to all of this, we will be giving away some incredible prizes.

You can win the chance to be one of our Junior Cityzens of the Match - an exclusive experience for junior fans at the Burnley game – whilst a signed Jack Grealish shirt and tickets to watch Pep Guardiola’s side are also up for grabs.
