Getting there

The Etihad is only a 10 minute taxi ride from Manchester Piccadilly train station, traffic permitting. Alternatively, fans can walk it in around half an hour or take the Metrolink, alighting at the Etihad Campus stop. Due to external segregation after the match, you will not be able to turn left towards the Etihad Campus Metrolink stop. You will be directed around the stadium. Both Holt Town and Velopark stops - the Metrolink stations on either side of the Etihad Campus - will not be operational for at least an hour after each the match.


After the potential for a rainy morning, it should remain dry in Manchester for the match, with temperatures around 16 degrees.

We’ll play this game as any other.” – Sergio Aguero will not be taking the Whites for granted.
