Club policy allows children under 5-years to enter the stadium without a ticket to sit with their parent/guardian. All children aged 5-years to 14-years must have a ticket and be accompanied by an adult (over 18-years). Children aged over 14-years are able to enter the stadium unaccompanied, but cannot be responsible for another supporter until they are aged 18-years and over.
Please note: If a supporter number used is that of an adult, then only an adult ticket may be purchased. This also applies to under 16s and over 65s. It is important that you have purchased, and are in possession of, the correct ticket and that it is activated to allow you access in to the stadium. If the supporter who originally purchased the ticket is no longer able to attend the match, please contact the Supporter Services team on 0161 444 1894 (option 1, then option 3) to discuss, and where appropriate, upgrade your ticket. Failure to upgrade your ticket before you attempt to enter the ground may result in a stadium ban.
As a result of UEFA requirements and progression to the knock-out stages of the competition, a number of seats allocated to 2013/14 Platinum and Gold Seasoncard holders who have registered on the UEFA Competition Cup Scheme will not be available for this match. Areas impacted for this stage of the Champions League competition are as follows:
East, South and Family Stands Level 1 – Rows A and B.
Increased height of the perimeter advertising boards. Row C is also impacted in block 105 of the East Stand.
Colin Bell Stand Level 1 – Block 126.
UEFA requirement for an expanded technical area around the home and away dugouts.
Colin Bell Stand Level 2 – Block 223.
UEFA requirement for the Club to provide an allocation of ‘First Class’ seating to the Visiting Club, located between the 16m lines. A small number of seats are also held in block 222 for segregation and safety.
Colin Bell Stand Level 3 – Block 326.
UEFA requirement for an expanded television and media commentary area.
East Stand Level 2 – Block 202 and 204.

East Stand Level 2 – Blocks 206, 207 and 209.
UEFA requirement for the Club to provide an allocation of ‘First Class’ seats to UEFA and UEFA Champions League Partners.
Supporters who have joined the 2013/14 UEFA Competition Cup Scheme and whose seasonal seat is located in any of the affected areas listed above will have their seat relocated to an alternative area within the stadium, based on their allocated seat for our last Group Stage match against Viktoria Plzen. All supporters who are newly impacted will be allocated a seat as near to their seasonal seat as possible.
If you find that you are unhappy with the seat location that you have been provided, please contact 0161 444 1894 (option 1, option 3) or visit the Ticket Office on the first floor of the City Store at the Etihad Stadium.
It is important to remember that we have a significant number of supporters on the UEFA Competition Cup Scheme, and whilst we will endeavour to allocate you the best available seat, this may not be possible due to availability. If this is the case, we will allocate you a seat as close to your preferred choice as we can. All supporters on the UEFA Competitions Cup Scheme will have their seats processed before we go on sale to other supporters to ensure we can offer you the best available seats.
Hospitality is available for this match, from £105 plus VAT. Whether you’re looking to celebrate with family and friends, entertain clients or just treat yourself, we have the perfect package to suit you, and your budget. And, for 2013/14 we welcome Jamie Oliver’s creativity in the kitchen. To book online or find out more about the facilities click here. Alternatively, please call 0161 444 1894 (option 1, option 2) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Important Supporter Information
Visiting the Stadium
The stadium address for satellite navigation is: Etihad Stadium, Manchester M11 3FF. If you have not visited the Etihad Stadium before, we want you to enjoy the whole experience, and that starts with how to get here and where to park. To find out more click here for the stadium plan.
Supporters requiring a taxi after the final whistle are advised to make their way to Ashton New Road where taxis are located. Due to road closures immediately after the game, taxis are unable to enter the Etihad Campus for at least one hour after the final whistle. Those supporters wishing to travel in to Manchester City centre may board supporter buses which are also located on Ashton New Road opposite the South Stand.
To help continue improving the matchday experience for all supporters, we ask that you respect the club’s request to avoid persistent standing at all games. This is one of our biggest sources of complaints from your fellow supporters in all sections of the stadium. We wish to make our matchdays as enjoyable an experience as possible for all of our fans and, as such, we request that you and fellow supporters remain in your seat for the majority of the match. Fans who breach these requests may be ejected from the stadium, and in some cases may have their membership card withdrawn. Please help us to avoid such measures by co-operating with this request and help us to create an enjoyable experience for all of our fans. We thank you for your support in helping us ensure a visit to the Etihad Stadium is a great experience.
