“"Magic Weekend" Event - Sunday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My sons treated me to an early Father's Day present and that was tickets to attend the second day Super League matches held on the Sunday as part of the Magic Weekend event. There were 3 separate matches being held on the day which meant there were lots of fans of all the teams playing. This also meant there was a fantastic atmosphere as they intermingled in spite of their allegiances.
I had been to the stadium before for music concerts but this time it was for Rugby League. The facilities in and around the stadium are very good with plenty of catering outlets inside and out. Our seats were in the second tier and the the seating was comfortable and the view of the playing pitch in all areas was unimpaired.
The organisers of the event laid on entertainment including a live rock band Conquer Rio.
Access to the stadium is good by either road or public transport.
The stadium was originally the venue for the Commonwealth Games before it became the home of Manchester City FC.

“Best ground in Manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Visited the Etihad for the Wigan game and as ever, found the view excellent and seating spacious, if not as padded luxury you get at Arsenal. Leg room and a good view to match most in the EPL - just a slight dip in the pitch making the far goalline difficult to determine. certainly more comfortable and a better view than Old T afford, plus better prices. Facilities for away fans are good, with drink and food available in the ground at reasonable prices.

There's a soccer special bus (£1.50) to and from Piccadilly in the center of town, easy to use and no hassle from the City fans with us wearing Wigan scarves. As this game was sandwiched between games against Millwall and West Ham the City fans were a joy.

“Blue moon rising”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

I've visited city a few times to watch football and concerts and usually found it a good venue for both. Today how ever I took the stadium tour £10, not a bad price . The staff showed us the past the present and the future of the club which looks bright! The premier league trophy is looking good with its blue and white ribbons, the players changing rooms, the pitch , basically everything you need to know about city and a little more . The club have always been good to their supporters and this 90mibs ground tour certainly was worth the money, very friendly staff , thanks everyone
