Manchester City matches at Etihad Stadium
The most decorated Premier League club of the past decade and very much English football's dominant force since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from their rivals Manchester United, Manchester City has been tough to beat in recent times.
Six-time winners of the top flight in the modern era, with four of those trophies coming in the Pep Guardiola era, only Chelsea and Liverpool have won the title during the Spaniard's reign at the Etihad Stadium.
Last season's treble has elevated them to rarefied company, however, cementing their place as the greatest club football side in English football in recent times, and perhaps since the turn of the millennium, with stars such as Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish helping to power their mighty machine.
Their home, Etihad Stadium, opened in 2003 for football purposes, has become synonymous with their success and has proven a supreme fortress for their concentrated efforts to dominate the game. Few teams relish a trip to City - and fewer still come away with anything to show for their record.

The most expensive options at the Platinum Experience and Aashi Super Dry Tunnel Club VVIP packages, which offer a matchday box as well as either a meet-and-great with a key City squad member or prime position to catch all the pre-match action.
Further executive box options allow you to impress with a coterie of guests in your own private environment, while those who already have seats may want to upgrade to one of City's fine dining options, with a slew of restaurants and bars to make your day.
In addition, City further provides offsite hospitality, where fans can enjoy a pre-match meal at an acclaimed Manchester restaurant before they are ferried to the ground for the game of their choice.
When do Manchester City hospitality tickets go on sale?
Though package-to-package varies, Manchester City hospitality options for the Etihad Stadium can be browsed as early as the general on-sale for tickets to club members or even close to the confirmation of the season's fixture list.
However, more popular fixtures will likely sell out their options sooner rather than later. The easiest way to ensure your place is to keep an eye on the club's hospitality website and know what your individual options are.
How can I buy Manchester City season tickets?
You cannot purchase season tickets for Manchester City's 2023-24 campaign right now.
You can, however sign up to the club's mailing list, which will offer you the chance to purchase a season ticket for their next campaign when they become available.
How can I buy Manchester City away tickets?
You can purchase Manchester City away tickets from the club's official website, just as you would for home matches. You will still need a City membership to do so however.
You can also explore purchasing tickets from the club website of their opponent, though you will likely need to be a member there too, making it particularly ineffective as a cost-saving measure.
How hard is it to get Manchester City football match tickets?
Due to high demand, getting your hands on Premier League tickets for Manchester City matches is not easy, though it is typically not as tough as it is for their rivals.
Unsurprisingly, that can lead many fans to head to secondary resale sites such as StubHub in their efforts to bag tickets, though even then, it is not a foregone conclusion.
The best way to get tickets for Manchester City matches is to ensure you have a membership and browse the individual match options available. Remember, games against lower Premier League opposition or non-rivals will likely be easier to find.
How do I buy cheap Manchester City tickets?
The best way to buy cheap Manchester City tickets is from the club's official website; looking for tickets in the more cost-friendly portions of the Etihad Stadium.
Second-hand resale sites such as StubHub may also offer cheap tickets at short notice, with prices likely at their lowest the closer you get to the game.
What is the best way to travel to Etihad Stadium?
The best way to travel to the Etihad Stadium is by public transportation, with bus services and the Metrolink offering easy access to the ground.

The nearby Holt Town and Velopark Metrolink stops, either side of the Etihad Campus halt, will not be open for at least an hour full-time however, so be aware of that. Parking can also be booked, though it must be done in advance, and space is limited.
