Owner description: Come and visit the home of the Manchester City Football Club and explore the heritage through the unique memorabilia and interactive displays, reliving the greatest moments and discovering what makes City the Club that it is today. Take in the view of the Etihad from the Tunnel Club seating area and visit one of the Club's superb hospitality areas. Take your seat in the press room, sit behind the press desk and through your own eyes, experience the feelings and emotions Pep Guardiola and the first team players feel when conducting a press conference. Get warmed up in the players warm up room and then venture into the inner sanctum of the dressing room. Sit in your favourite player’s seat before heading to tunnel. Stand in the tunnel and experience the roar of 55,000 supporters, then walk pitch side and take in the panoramic view of the Etihad Stadium. Sit in Pep Guardiola’s seat in the dugout and feel the big match excitement.

Although the venue itself was good in terms of acoustics the stadium is nothing special.

We bought a bottle of beer for £5.50 outside the arena and it was warm and they had no ice.

The odd member of staff were nice but over all its not a great arena

Saw the foo fighters here in June.
Parked right outside but cost £15
But we managed to get straight out quickly after the gig.
No toilet roll in the ladies toilet outside the venue.
Very few food vendors outside the stadium too - just fish and chips or burgers. Lots of gin bars, prosecco bars, champagne bars and summer bar.
Staff were all friendly and helpful.
We decided to have something to eat inside, however, the only food available was hot dogs, burgers, chips or chocolate bars. So if you're vegetarian eat before hand!
They had a strict rule for going up and down the stairs which is probably a good thing to manage so many people.
Drinks are really expensive £5.50 for a pint of cider or beer. £25 for a bottle of wine. Soft drinks weren't that much cheaper either. It's not like you can take your own so you have no choice really.
View was good and seating was OK.
Getting out of this venue afterwards was OK too. Loads of people telling you which side to go to if you were getting the trams etc.
If we went again, we'd definitely eat elsewhere beforehand.

Compared to many concert venues, this is generally very good - easy to reach on the trams, well signposted, walk up to seats not too complicated, plenty of toilets etc. Security tight but streamlined.
Went to the Foo Fighters on 19th June, luckily not caught up in the ticketing problem.
Atmosphere was brilliant, sound as good as you'd get in such a big outdoor venue - you expect high prices for drink, but the staff were very well organised.
Worth noting, the people in the rows in front of us had a raw deal - we booked tickets which just said 'Legends M408..' Great views, extra comfortable padded seats, but the people in the rows immediately in front of us had paid the same, and were having to get up every 2 minutes to let people pass. The stewards said they don't usually sell these seats for concerts because everyone knows these rows are used as passing points, but as the concert was a sell-out, someone had just thought 'what the hell'. The stewards were great, and moved some people to spare seats just after the support acts finished, and some within the first 10 minutes of the main gig, but they were pretty annoyed (as well they might be!)

Paid a small fortune for tickets to see Foo Fighters but sound was appalling, been to gigs there before and it’s renowned for being bad but this was a new level of poor. Security checks were poor and organisation of staff was chaos. Can’t face another gig here.

Went to Foo Fighters concert at Etihad. Security was great, felt at ease. Tram was brilliant. Food wasn't too pricey. Good all round.
