MATCHDAY: City in action at the Etihad Stadium.

Ticket, travel and parking information for supporters attending our home game against Stoke City on Wednesday 8 March.

The Etihad Stadium fixture kicks off at 8pm and supporters are asked to arrive as early as possible and we advise you arrive no later than 45-minutes prior to kick off .

We also ask that you do not to bring any bags unless essential.

Any bags will be searched, in accordance with our regular matchday security procedures, which may cause a delay in entering the stadium. We thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. 

Travelling to the Stadium

Ensure you check travel conditions before setting out. Highways England provides live traffic information via its website, local and national radio travel bulletins and electronic road signs.

Matchday changes to private hire and hackney carriages

Providing the best facilities for our supporters, as well as ensuring the security and safety of all visitors to the stadium, continues to be at the forefront of our operation. 

The Club has recently completed the second stage of developing a safe, vehicle-free space around the stadium and has recently installed anti-ram barriers to protect our site and our supporters.

In order to ensure we have a safe, robust and reliable traffic management plan, we have made the decision to prevent access to private hire taxis and Hackney carriages on matchdays.

No such vehicle will be permitted within the green fence line of the estate on matchdays unless under extreme circumstances, with prior notification of the passenger/vehicle details and at the discretion of the Club.

There will continue to be a hackney rank located on Rowsley Street and for private hire pick-ups that take place during the matchday road closures (15-minutes prior to final whistle until 30-minutes after final whistle). We suggest that you arrange to meet your taxi at one of the 3 areas highlighted on the map here.

These areas have been identified as the closest, most practical areas that will not be directly impacted by said closures. At approximately 30-minutes after final whistle, you may be able to meet your taxi closer to the stadium but they will still not be permitted onto the Etihad Campus site.

Please also note that during and prior to the road closures taxis are not permitted to wait on Ashton New Road for their passengers.

If you have been issued a permit by the Club for a parking bay, you will not be entitled to pass this onto a private hire or Hackney moving forwards and they will not be accepted at the gates. 

Pre-match access to the City Store and Ticket Office

To access the campus during the day, supporters should park in the Blue Car Park off Alan Turing Way.  A charge of £10 will be applied upon entry but will be refunded upon exit*. 

The shuttle service will be available for supporters that require assistance to reach the top of Joe Mercer Way. *Vehicles remaining on-site after 5:30pm will not receive a refund.

Disabled supporters who use a wheelchair can access the parking adjacent to the City Store via the main Entrance at Rowsley Street (Gate 11) until 3pm. 

You will be required to show your Blue Badge at the gate. For access after 3pm, disabled supporters will be required to show their matchday car park pass if they have one, and if not they will be required to park in the Blue Car Park.

Ticket collections

All home supporters who are collecting pre-purchased paper tickets may do so from the Stadium Ticket Office located in City Square, behind the stage.

For this match, we are open from 9am until 8:15pm. Supporters are strongly advised to collect their tickets at least 60-minutes before kick-off.

If you have a Print@Home Ticket you are reminded to print your ticket(s) on white A4 plain paper prior to leaving for the match.

Official match ticket

All tickets are located in the home area for the use of Manchester City supporters only.  The Club does not have a neutral area and visiting supporters identified in the home areas will face ejection.

It is important that you have purchased, and are in possession of, the correct ticket and that it is activated to allow you access into the stadium. 

The Club accepts no liability for tickets purchased through unofficial channels, tickets may be fraudulent and will not be valid.

Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult (over 18) for all matches played at the Etihad Stadium. We advise you carry photo ID to prevent any issues entering the stadium. 

Supporters are required to upgrade concessionary tickets for this match. A supporter in another age band can use a concessionary ticket but must ensure they have paid the applicable upgrade fee in advance of entering the stadium.

The singing section is located in the South Stand within block 111, part of block 114 and blocks 115-119. Supporters that sit outside of this section are not part of the singing section.

All supporters are reminded that persistent standing is not allowed. Failure to adhere to this may result in an ejection or a stadium ban.

Colin Bell Stand development - Level One

Due to the ongoing Colin Bell Stand development work, supporters are unable to walk freely along the Colin Bell Stand Level One concourse from North to South and vice versa. 

It is important that supporters enter the stadium using the turnstile that is closest to their seat and does not require them to walk along the concourse adjacent to Blocks 125, 126 and 127 as access at this point is no longer available.

To assist with this and ensure that you can enter and exit the stadium correctly to access your seat safely, please click here.  We thank all supporters in advance for their support and co-operation.

Code of Conduct: Respect the Badge

If you ever witness crime, vandalism, violence, drugs, the use of smoke bombs and pyrotechnics or abusive behaviour from home or visiting supporters, inside or outside the Etihad Stadium, make contact with a steward as soon as you can and report your concerns.

Manchester City is proud to support the Kick It Out campaign. Download the KIO reporting app today.
