Manchester City: Etihad Stadium Guide
Manchester City FC plays their home matches at the Etihad Stadium, a state-of-the-art, modern stadium that can hold 55,000 football supporters. The stadium boasts some of the best views and excellent matchday hospitality to watch one of the leading Premier League sides.
Ticket holders can enjoy unrestricted views from their seats in any of the four stands, including the away section for customers looking to book an away trip to watch their team. Private Box seats are also listed on Football Ticket Pad with a choice of premium Manchester City Hospitality tickets for each match this season.
The Etihad Stadium was purpose-built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games and has since undergone vast redevelopment to house one of England’s leading clubs. The stadium has been increased to three tiers in three of the four stands. It is the centrepiece of the £200 million state-of-the-art Etihad Campus which houses the new academy and training facilities.
Whether it is match tickets in The Family Stand or MCFC VIP hospitality in the Colin Bell Stand, Football Ticket Pad is sure to have the seats for you at the Etihad Stadium this season.
Etihad Stadium Seating
The Family Stand / North Stand: This is the only section of the stadium which is still two-tiered and can be found behind the goal. The North Stand has since been renamed The Family Stand and provides a popular seating area for MCFC ticket holders with children.
Football Ticket Pad has a variety of tickets available in this section in both the lower and upper tiers, and they can be found listed as Shortside Lower and Shortside Upper for all matches at The Etihad Stadium. Fans can also take a walk along Joe Mercer Way upon arriving at the stadium to soak up the atmosphere.
Colin Bell Stand: Following the 2002 Commonwealth Games this was originally a two-tier stand which has since had a third tier added due to increased ticket demand. The Colin Bell Stand is the Main Stand at the Etihad which houses the dressing rooms, tunnel and technical area.
The stand contains the Club’s main offices, the Boardroom and Mancunian Suites, and media facilities. The Colin Bell Stand is also where the player entrance is located outside the stadium, allowing fans to catch a glimpse of their favourite players entering the ground on matchday.
East Stand: Similar to the Colin Bell Stand, the East Stand has been transformed into a three-tier construction to house more MCFC supporters. These Longside Lower and Longside Upper Manchester City tickets offer fantastic unrestricted views and also house extensive corporate facilities such as the Citizens Suites and 93:20.
South Stand: This is where the most vocal MCFC supporters sit with a designated singing section in blocks: 111, 114 and 115-119. There is plenty of atmosphere in this section of the Etihad and it is where the away fans are housed behind the goal.
Away section tickets can be bought for each game in the Premier League guaranteeing you a great day out in Manchester amongst your fellow travellers. The South Stand also hosts the Legends Lounge for fans interested in securing more premium seats.
