History and description

Etihad Stadium, which is also known as Eastlands, was built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Manchester City moved into Etihad Stadium at the start of the 2003-04 season in order to have a modern replacement for their old stadium, Maine Road. In 2008, the UEFA Cup final was played at Etihad Stadium in Manchester between Zenit St Petersburg and Rangers FC. The stadium was originally called City of Manchester Stadium, but was renamed Etihad Stadium in 2011 following a ten-year sponsorship deal with Etihad Airways.

At around the same time, Manchester City started to look into expanding the stadium. First they considered plans to raise the roof and add a complete third tier, but eventually decided to just add additional tiers to the stands behind the goals.

In the summer of 2014, work started on expanding the South Stand with an additional tier. This boosted capacity with 6,000 seats. At the same time, the club announced plans to add a further 3 rows of seating pitchside, which brought total capacity to over 55,000 seats for the start of the 2015-16 season.

If there is sufficient demand, the club may consider adding a third tier to the North Stand to increase capacity to an approximate 61,000 seats.

How to get to the Etihad Stadium

Etihad Stadium is located east of Manchester near Manchester city centre and Manchester Piccadilly Station. The walk from the city centre to the stadium takes about 30 minutes, and it takes about 25 minutes from Manchester Piccadilly Station. Follow the City Link signs.

It is quicker to catch the Metro from either Piccadilly Station or - for example - Market Street in the city centre. Take a train in the direction of Droylsden and get off at stop Etihad Campus right next to Etihad Stadium. The journey takes 8 to 10 minutes.

There are many buses that serve the stadium, e.g. line 53, 54, 185, 186, 216, 217, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237, X36 and X37. After the match buses will depart from Ashton New Road next to the South Stand.

If arriving by car, the stadium can best be reached from the M60. Take either junction 22 or 24, and drive east towards the city centre. From there on, follow the signs for Sportcity.

Address: Etihad Stadium, SportCity, Manchester, M11 3FF

Eat, drink, and sleep near Etihad Stadium

There is not a lot of good places to eat and drink in the vicinity of the Etihad Stadium, which is not surprising considering how spread out the area is. A walk or ride on the metro to the stadium is an option for those who want to eat and drink in the city centre. Several bars are located around Piccadilly Station, which is closest to the stadium, but other nightlife areas such as the Northern Quarters, The Printworks (both north of the center), Deansgate Locks (south), or Town Hall are not too far away either.

There are no hotels located directly near the Etihad Stadium. However, there is an Ibis Budget hotel approximately 10 minutes away towards the center. To learn more about hotels near the stadium, please click here.

There are plenty of options near Piccadilly Station, though most fall in the high-end category. The Portland by Thistle, Premier Inn, Britannia Hotel, and Mercure are some of the cheaper options. Of course, there are plenty of other options elsewhere in the center, and the stadium is easily reached by public transport. Click here for an overview of all hotels in Manchester.

Manchester City Tickets

Tickets for Manchester City games can be purchased online or by telephone. While Man City generally sells out high profile matches, tickets for most other matches are generally available, especially if booked in advance.

Ticket prices depend on the opponent. Football tickets start at £35.00 for a lower-tier seat behind the goal and go up to £57.00 for tickets to see the most interesting opponents.

If the match is sold out, you can get hospitality tickets through either Viagogo or Stubhub. These tend to be rather reasonably priced so are even worth a shot if you fancy trying out a slightly upgraded experience.

Well done to all of us - we had a great time. Just wish Villa were back in the Premier so I could visit again soon.

I was very scared of heights, and the seats we were allocated were on the third level, so your staff did a great job accommodating me. Thank you again!
