Manchester City Football Club has launched a series of new experiences as part of its revamped Stadium & Club tour and in response has reported a 20% increase in group visits.
The revamped facilities, which became features on the tours last August, include the First Team changing rooms, where quotes from Tony Walsh’s poetic tribute to Manchester, This is the Place, are on the walls; the First Team warm-up areas; the away team facilities; and the players’ tunnel.
Andy Begg, head of Stadium and Club Tours, said: “Group tours at Manchester City Football Club have seen a real uplift in sales this season, after the stadium experienced a huge revamp - introducing state-of-the-art player facilities and the brand-new hospitality offering, The Tunnel Club.
“This uplift has been assisted by the number of great packages on offer for groups, which include afternoon tea in an executive suite or a combination of match-day tickets and a stadium tour. Tours are certainly not restricted to Manchester City fans, or even football fans in general, as there is plenty to enjoy for those interested in food, business or hospitality, or those looking for some family fun.”
What groups can expect from a tour
The updated Stadium & Club tour gives groups the chance to experience Manchester City’s heritage through memorabilia and interactive displays, enabling fans to relive the Blues’ greatest moments and discover exactly what makes Manchester City the club it is today.
For all group tours, Manchester City offers free coach parking at the Etihad Stadium, as well as a free space for the driver to join the Club tour. Group rates are available, too.
