Matchday changes to private hire and hackney carriages

The Club has recently completed the second stage of developing a safe, vehicle-free space around the Stadium.


We have made the decision to prevent access to private hire taxis & hackney carriages on match days, within the green fence line of the estate, 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 (15mins prior to final whistle until 30mins after final whistle), we suggest that you arrange to meet your taxi at one of the 3 areas highlighted on the map here.

At approximately 30mins 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.

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.

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 11am.

You will be required to show your Blue Badge at the gate. For access after 11am, disabled supporters will be required to park in their matchday car park, showing their seasonal pass and if not they will be required to park in the Blue Car Park.

*Vehicles that accessed the City Store and remain on-site after 2pm will not receive a refund.
