The Champions League Group Stage draw this season sees City drawn against three of Europe’s top sides; Viktoria Plzen – the Champions of the Czech Republic, CSKA Moscow – Russian Champions, and Bayern Munich – German champions and of course current holders of the Champions League.
The last time City faced Bayern Munich at the Etihad Stadium the Blues came out on top 2-0, with goals from David Silva and Yaya Toure. This season all eyes will be on City to see if we can progress beyond the group stages for the first time.
You can be at the Etihad to witness all three Champions League home group stage games with just one ticket, priced from just £99 for adults and £45 for juniors, a total saving of £15 over purchasing the tickets individually. Fixture details are;
Manchester City v Bayern Munich, Wednesday 2nd October 2013, kick off 7.45pm
Manchester City v CSKA Moscow, Tuesday 5th November 2013, kick off 7.45pm

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.

All supporters who are newly registered to the scheme for this season will be allocated a seat as near to their seasonal seat as possible.
Upon receipt of your email confirmation, if you find that you are unhappy with the seat location that you have been provided, you will have the opportunity to contact us to choose an alternative seat location.

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 all three of our home Group Stage matches. To purchase, or find out more, 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.
